Our counselors partner with psychiatric residents from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, to provide evaluations and follow-up assessments for children coping with mental health issues that could lead to abuse, hospitalization, or the breakdown of the family unit.

RMYA also provides referrals for long-term psychiatric care when necessary.

Parenting Classes are $7 each, or $35 when pre-registering for the whole course.
