New Haven Trauma Coalition
A school community that understands why treating trauma — and providing that care — helps build strong and resilient children: sound like a good idea? We think so! And that’s why CBC is part of the New Haven Trauma Coalition. The Coalition includes New Haven Public Schools, the City of New Haven, United Way BOOST! and Clifford Beers Clinic, and it’s up and running!
What is it, and what is the Coalition doing? Well, it’s school-based, which means the Coalition (together with other like-minded efforts!!) is in the schools (as of now, 12 schools), and:
- delivering care coordination to students and their families
- providing direct care to address PTSD, depression and behavioral problems while improving functioning, grades, attendance, peer/parent support, and coping skills
- assessing and screening children for stress
- training the school workforce in trauma
