Menninger and Community Engagement

At Menninger, we’re committed to enhancing mental healthcare in the Houston area, particularly in underserved areas.

The Gathering Place

Free vocational skills training, a wellness program, employment assistance and recreational and social activities are available for the more than 300 members of The Gathering Place, a psychosocial clubhouse for adults with persistent mental illness.

BridgeUp at Menninger

Since 2015, BridgeUp at Menninger served more than 40,000 at-risk youth in the Greater Houston area by integrating social and emotional learning (SEL) and behavioral health in schools to enhance the wellbeing of vulnerable adolescents. Our work focused on prevention and early intervention of behavioral and mental health disorders through schoolwide SEL programs, behavioral health supports and collaboration. Approximately 5,000 at-risk adolescents received access to mental health supports, including treatment at The Menninger Clinic.
BridgeUp at Menninger was made possible through a seven-year grant. 

Community Healthcare Needs Assessment

Menninger provides mental health services to adolescents and adults from the local, regional and national communities. Our most recent Community Healthcare Needs Assessment was completed in June 2022; you can find a brief summary of it here. It reflects the portrait of mental health needs and outlines how Menninger aligns its services to help respond to the community's needs. The implementation plan can be found here.
