Mental Health Resources

The Child Trauma Training Center's statewide Centralized Referral System links families directly with specialized trauma services from a list of agencies trained in specific trauma treatment models. Contact the Centralized Referral System by calling:

1-855-LINK-KID (1-855-546-5543)

To receive coordinated care or for convenience, caregivers might wish to seek referrals through their child’s primary care provider. We recommend caregivers request a therapist with training and experience in the treatment of child sexual abuse trauma.
