Not every child exposed to stress and traumatic experiences is affected in the same way. When the traumatic experience overwhelms a child’s ability to cope, post-traumatic stress reactions can occur.
First Witness Child Advocacy Center can connect children and families with trauma-informed care quickly and avoid typical barriers to accessing mental health services. Through linkage agreements, mental health representatives from the Human Development Center and Paradigm Therapy Services provide specialized trauma-focused mental health services unique to the needs of children and their non-offending caregivers.
