Clarity Child Guidance Center is celebrating our 135th birthday on June 23, 2021! 

Back in 1886, thirteen women gathered at the Maverick Hotel and planted the seed that grew into the only not-for-profit children’s mental health hospital in South Texas.

Keep an eye out for announcements on how we will celebrate this landmark birthday!

Trusting someone else to care for your child is scary. You can ease those concerns by visiting the Meet Our Doctors page and putting faces with names and credentials.


Please use the Lifesize App to call in for your appointment.

Due to COVID-19, outpatient services are currently conducted via Telehealth. Your family can stay at home and still meet with a mental health provider.


Masks are a must!

To ensure the health of our patients, visitors and staff, we are taking the following precautions:

In-patient visitation is limited to one designated guardian as required by Texas Health and Human Services.

Outpatient Services are provided via Telehealth. 

Crisis Services remains open. 

I want to support the kids at clarity!
