SAMHSA Grant Increases Access to Treatment for Families Exposed to Trauma

The Institute for Child and Family Well-Being (ICFW) is collaborating with Wisconsin’s Department of Children and Families and Office of Children’s Mental Health on a five-year, $1.8 million grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) that will increase access to evidence-based mental health treatments for children and families that have been exposed to trauma. This funding will be used for clinical training as well as the implementation and evaluation of Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) in Milwaukee and Racine counties.

This project reinforces ICFW’s commitment to making evidence-based interventions more widely available to address the impact of trauma in our communities.
