Outpatient Mental Health

Behavioral Health Services Staff


The Outpatient Mental Health Services of Loretto Hospital have been serving the needs of the Austin Community since 1960. The mission of the program is to provide comprehensive behavioral health services to enhance self-esteem and the level of functioning of persons with mental illness. To achieve this goal, we provide treatment that attempts to rely upon the strengths of the individual as well as focus on his/her needs. We collaborate with the health care team seeking to offer a sense of well-being, awareness of emotional support systems and community resources.


  • The Outpatient Mental Health Services program provides treatment interventions to persons who experience mild, moderate, and severe mental illness. We have highly skilled Clinical Therapists, Clinical Specialists, and an Advanced Nurse practitioner available to assist with medication management, individual and group therapies.
  • In addition, we provide co-occurring treatment for persons having trouble with psychiatric disorders and substance abuse.
  • We have after care services for patients who have been discharged from state operated facilities and hospitals designed to help maintain progress, prevent relapse, and further adjustment of the individual back into the community.
