The Center for Child Trauma Assessment, Services and Interventions (CCTASI) at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine is proud to announce that our sponsor, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative (NCTSI) has launched a new campaign called “Helping Kids Recover and Thrive.” The campaign aims to raise awareness of child traumatic stress and the many resources available to help address it, and includes new PSAs in English and Spanish, as well as a Website and a series of new materials.
Numerous children and youth experience traumatic events ranging from serious injuries and illnesses to interpersonal violence, abuse, and neglect to natural or human-caused disasters. One nationally representative sample of children and youth aged 1 month to 17 years old, 57.7% of the children and youth had experienced or witnessed at least 1 of the following: assaults and bullying, sexual victimization, maltreatment by a caregiver, property victimization, or witnessing victimization in 2012. It was also common to have had multiple exposures.
But there is hope. Just as CCTASI strives to build an infrastructure to assist child-serving systems in understanding, recognizing, and responding to the developmental effects of child trauma, SAMHSA’s NCTSI strives to help combat child traumatic stress and for children to recover and thrive through its New Website, PSAs, materials, and grantees.

Since Congress’s Children’s Health Act of 2000, NCTSI has been actively helping children and their families recover and thrive through the funding and support of a network of intervention developers, frontline providers, researchers, and families called the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN). In fact, since its inception, NCTSN has trained more than one million health professionals including mental health professionals, primary care providers, and other professionals in child-serving systems, consumers, and members of the public. Additionally, more than 200 grants have been awarded to 180 member centers providing trauma treatment to thousands, and these centers have been able to provide evidence-based treatment to hundreds of thousands of children, adolescents, and their families.
