Applications being accepted for the 2016 National Center for Child Traumatic Stress grant
November 17, 2015
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Mental Health Services, is accepting applications for the fiscal year (FY) 2016 National Center for Child Traumatic Stress (NCCTS) grant. The purpose of the NCCTS is to develop and maintain a collaborative network structure, support resource and policy development and dissemination, and coordinate the network’s national child trauma education and training efforts.
The NCCTS is part of the National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative (NCTSI). The purpose of NCTSI is to improve the quality of trauma treatment and services in communities for children, adolescents, and their families who experience or witness traumatic events, and to increase access to effective trauma-focused treatment and services for children and adolescents throughout the nation. The initiative is designed to address child trauma issues by creating a national network of grantees—the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) or Network—that works collaboratively to develop and promote effective trauma treatment and services for children, adolescents, and their families exposed to a wide array of traumatic events.
