Community Counselors help people who are uninsured, whose existing coverage does not provide mental health services benefits, are low-income and lack the money to pay for counseling services, or who would not receive treatment any other way. Counseling services are provided by trained, licensed professional counselors, licensed clinical social workers, and licensed marriage and family counselors. Sessions are private and conducted in a safe and familiar environment such as churches and community centers.

The first meeting with a counselor is free. A modest fee based on a sliding fee scale is collected for each follow-up session; however, no one is denied service because they cannot pay.

An appointment must be scheduled in advance.

UT Teen Health has been awarded funding to carry out educational and clinical projects designed to strengthen youth and their families and prevent teen pregnancy in the San Antonio area as well as throughout Texas. Current federally funded projects focus on school and community-based education. UT Teen Health also partners with organizations for youth in the juvenile justice and foster care systems, or those working with pregnant or parenting teens.

The sexual risk avoidance education project partners with schools and community agencies to deliver relationships curricula that is medically accurate and age appropriate, promotes positive youth development, and teaches risk avoidance skills for middle and high school aged youth. In addition, this project builds community linkages and support for youth by working with a parent advisory board and youth leadership council.
