Community Health Clinics

Community Health Clinics

Community clinics typically offer comprehensive services to underserved populations, and adapting TST for community-based health clinics allows mental health services to be accessed in a safe and convenient way. TST is offered as an evidenced based treatment approach that teaches emotional and behavioral regulations skills to children who have experienced trauma. The model also addresses the social environment to ensure that trauma-affected children are receiving the best possible support from their families, schools, and community environments.

Agencies that have adapted TST for use in community clinics are Martha Eliot Health Center (MA), Hillside Family of Agencies (NY), Astor Services for Children and Families (NYC), Jewish Board of Child and Family Services (NYC) and Dimock Community Health Center (MA).
