This fact sheet explains how traumatic events can affect children’s well-being and behavior and how two programs the Comprehensive Community Mental Health Services for Children and Their Families Program and the National Child Traumatic Stress Network address the needs of those children. Results of these trauma-informed care programs included fewer suicidal thoughts and suicide attempts.
