Our Mission

Austin Child Guidance Center is a nonprofit that provides accessible, high-quality mental health services to children and their families to empower them to thrive in childhood and beyond.

Lily visited ACGC's walk in clinic to address her anxiety and depression. What she found was care, support, healing and so much more. 

Read Lily's Story

It's important to identify mental health issues in children early on and seek appropriate treatment. However, we understand that seeking mental health services for your child can be a difficult process. That's why we've put together some tips to help make the process a little bit easier for you.

Starting this spring, ACGC is once again offering the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule - Second Edition (ADOS-2). The ADOS-2 is a diagnostic tool designed to be part of the assessment for autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
