North Country Partnership for Trauma-Informed System-Building

In recognition of the long-term impacts of adverse childhood experiences on young children, a regional effort is underway to banded together schools and various other community organizations. Building a trauma-informed, coordinated system of care across sectors, offers the most promise for success. Spearheaded by NCES, the effort seeks to join partners from throughout the North Country to create a cross-sectional alliance aimed at increasing trauma-competence and improving the pathway from the early identification of trauma in young children through effective intervention. Potential partners not already involved are encouraged to contact NCES Executive Director, Lori Langlois, at lori @ ncedservices.org or 603-466-5437 to be included on future announcements about opportunities and convenings.
