Transitional Care Clinic (TCC)
The TCC is dedicated to improving peoples’ lives by engaging them in mental health services and linking them to long-term services. Our aim is to promote growth toward personal goals and decrease the need for psychiatric hospitalization. The TCC fosters clinical excellence, person-centered care, and the development of tomorrow’s mental health professionals through interprofessional education.
The TCC is a short-term clinic that helps people transition from psychiatric care at a local hospital to long-term mental health care in the community. The TCC accepts patients only by referral from partner hospitals. We typically work with people for approximately three months. People are discharged from the clinic when they begin psychiatric treatment and/or counseling in a different clinic in the community.
Appointments are required, and referrals are accepted only from designated staff at San Antonio hospitals via the Monarch secure online referral system.
Evidence-based Practice: Short-term, evidence-based treatments form the foundation of the TCC. We believe in the importance of providing treatment that has been shown to be effective for each client’s specific concerns.
Clinic Culture: Our staff prize the dignity, autonomy, and growth-orientation of clients. We appreciate and respect the various identities that make us unique, including race, age, culture, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, religion, spirituality, and family structure. We acknowledge that some identities can be devalued by our environments and that these experiences can affect how we feel about ourselves, others, and the world we live in.
Most Major Insurances Accepted
The TCC does not require insurance. The clinic does accept most major insurances, including Medicare and Medicaid. We also accept CareLink.
The TCC is funded by the Community Mental Health Grant through the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. Additional support is provided by University Health System of Bexar County, in collaboration with UT Health San Antonio.
