NCTSN (NATIONAL CHILD TRAUMATIC STRESS NETWORK)
The mission of the NCTSN is to raise the standard of care and improve access to services for traumatized children, their families, and communities. Chaddock has been an active member of this SAMHSA-funded initiative since 2008 when we were awarded a 4 year Category III regional community-based treatment dissemination site grant. Through this Chaddock provided evidence based services and training to two target populations within a 75-mile radius of Quincy, Illinois. The first was educators and service providers who have an impact on the development of children within the designated area. The other target population was under-served children and adolescents who have been impacted by abuse, neglect, catastrophic events, or trauma associated with a parent or caregiver who is deployed in the military. Over the course of 4 year grant Chaddock exceeded its goals and served 1,987 children and youth and additionally trained over 10,679 participants. Chaddock continues to be an active affiliate member of the NCTSN and continues to offer evidence based trauma-informed interventions and training locally, state-wide and nationally.
