Mental health initiative at Dell Children's Medical Center

Dell Children's Medical Center received a challenge grant in January 2017, with the Maxwell family matching up to $3 million in donations.

AUSTIN - Dell Children’s Medical Center is working to raise money as part of a challenge grant by the Maxwell family to better address mental health.

The challenge grant means the more money the community puts in, the more money the Maxwell family will put in, up to $3 million. The hospital has some mental health services, but the initiative announced in January aims to make the treatment much more comprehensive.

The new facility will have an inpatient unit with 24 beds, the Texas Child Study Center – an outpatient clinic, as well as an intensive outpatient program.

Construction is expected to begin in summer 2017, with completion in spring 2018. GO HERE for more information and to donate to the challenge grant.
