The Texas Building Bridges Initiative (TxBBI) is a partnership between Texas System of Care, Texas Health and Human Services Commission, the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, and the Texas Institute for Excellence in Mental Health. TxBBI, is committed to creating strong, coordinated partnerships between families, youth, community and residential treatment providers, and policy makers to ensure that comprehensive services and supports are family-driven, youth-guided, strengths-based, culturally and linguistically competent, individualized, evidence-informed, and consistent with research on sustained positive outcomes. TX BBI is partnering with Texas residential program leaders to explore the use of promising, best, and evidence-informed practices that promote sustained, positive outcomes post-residential discharge for youth and families.
