Your Mental Health Matters!

TTU K-12 is proud to partner with Campus Alliance for Telehealth Resources (CATR), supported by Texas Child Health Access Through Telemedicine (TCHATT) with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center to provide free counseling and mental health resources for our students.


  • The CATR-TCHATT team is made up of licensed professional counselors, licensed clinical social workers, a child psychologist, and child psychiatrists.


  • We collaborate with schools in West Texas and work to effectively assess, refer and treat students with mental health care needs.


  • We can be reached Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.


  • Students and parents/guardians will be present for all appointments.
  • A CATR-TCHATT team member will be virtually present to conduct or oversee the appointments.
  • Telemedicine will be utilized, which allows students to meet remotely with medical providers as needed.
  • These appointments may be held virtually from the student's home.


  • Once a student is identified, the school counselor will contact the parent/guardian. Next, the school counselor will provide the clinical supervisor with referral information. The CATR-TCHATT team will lead the coordination of services from there.


  • The goals of providing mental health assessment and mental health care in the school setting are to improve access, decrease stigma, decrease time away from school, improve community support, and improve outcomes as soon as possible so students can get back to the work of growing and developing into happy and successful citizens.
