Who We Serve NCTSN CARD Need for
Our Center


      The ATSSA is a member of The National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN), a coalition of centers from all over the United States, that aims to improve the quality, effectiveness, provision, and availability of therapeutic services delivered to all children and adolescents experiencing traumatic events. The Network’s goal is to develop and disseminate effective, evidence-based treatments; collect data for systematic study; and help to educate professionals and the public about the effects of trauma on children.

      The ATSSA Center, along with the NCTSN, are funded by the Center for Mental Health Services, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, US Department of Health and Human Services through a Congressional initiative, the Donald J. Cohen National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative. This Congressional initiative recognizes the profound, destructive, and widespread impact of trauma on American children's lives.
