Training & Education

Getting the right care, right from the start, makes an invaluable impact on children and adults affected by mental illness. With fewer than half of U.S. counties having a mental health provider — and more people seeking treatment than ever before — it’s a critical time to invest in our nation’s mental health workforce.
Each year, with the support of donors, Menninger trains 35 up-and-coming mental health professionals in partnership with academic affiliate Baylor College of Medicine and other universities across the nation. In addition, The Clinic serves as a clinical rotation site for more than 100 undergraduate medical, nursing, pharmacy, recreation therapy and occupational therapy students, helping to inspire new career paths in mental health.
Donors who support our training programs create access to skilled and compassionate caregivers who are ready to meet patients wherever they are in their mental health journey.
