The Juvenile Texas Correctional Office on Offenders with Medical or Mental Impairments (TCOOMMI) Special Needs Diversion Program provides intensive in-home counseling and case management services to youth ages 10-17 on probation in Travis County. The program is a joint venture between TCOOMMI and the Travis County Juvenile Probation Department.
Treatment teams are comprised of a therapist, case manager and specialized probation officer. Each team works together to counsel and educate youth and their families on how to live successfully with a mental health diagnosis, complete probation requirements and avoid re-offending or placement. Teams go to homes, schools, court and other community locations to provide services. Cases are open for six months on average, although time varies, with teams making home visits and several contacts weekly.
Youth ages 10-17 on probation who meet priority population requirements, have been referred by the Travis County Juvenile Probation Department, and have a parent/guardian willing to participate in intensive in-home services.
