According to the NIMH, one in five children are diagnosed with a mental disorder. A Harvard Medical School study found that suicide rates among boys and girls 15-19 years increased 21% and 8% respectively from 2016-2017. With such alarming statistics related to adolescent mental health, access to care should not be the problem. However, that was exactly the case in Western Texas.
In 2012, Covenant Health embarked on a master plan for their Lubbock, Texas campus. Though not included in the original plans, the need for updates to their Children’s Hospital facility became apparent. After significant rework of flexible spaces, competitive collaboration with a neighboring hospital, and the passion and commitment of a CEO, a new model for treating adolescent behavioral health is now part of the plan.
Join Covenant Health and Texas Tech as they detail their collaborative three-tiered approach to tackling this epidemic and removing the stigma of mental health.

Learning Objectives:

  • List the top five barriers to providing a comprehensive integrated care model for adolescent mental illness
  • State the three most important components to ensure that your master planning efforts deliver on your vision
