Our Story

The Missouri Children’s Trauma Network is a network of clinicians and advocates dedicated to expanding access to evidence-based mental health treatment for traumatized children. Recognizing that many Missouri children experience abuse and neglect that often has life-long adverse consequences, the Network works to promote the healing of children by: 1) training clinicians in evidence-based models, 2) improving screening, assessment and referral of traumatized children, 3) identifying and working to address systematic barriers to implementation of evidence-based services and 4) collecting data on treatment outcomes to demonstrate value.

 

In the next few years, the Missouri Children’s Trauma Network plans to raise the standard of care and improve access to services for children, families, and communities impacted by trauma.
