The project, implemented by a consortium of Denver government, community, and faith-based agencies, led by the Mental Health Center of Denver (MHCD), is based on the Comprehensive Gang Model developed by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. GRID-TTP will deliver two primary interventionsCognitive Behavioral Interventions in Schools (CBITS) and Structured Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress (SPARCS)in three middle school, one high school, and five recreation/community centers in the targeted Denver neighborhoods. During the two-year project period, 140 unduplicated youth will be served, some of whom, along with their families, will be referred to other MHCD services.

Prior funding to the Mental Health Center of Denver supported the Family Trauma Treatment Program, which providd access for low-income children and families to community mental health services through a network of more than thirty locations throughout the Denver area. The program improved services and treatment for children who experienced trauma by implementing and evaluating evidence-based interventions in a variety of community settings including schools, shelters, juvenile detention centers, day care centers, and neighborhood clinics.

Description: 

The Trauma Center of Excellence for Children and Families in Colorado aims to reduce health disparities in under-served children and families whose past traumatic experiences place them at risk for the development of trauma-related problems, by creating a nexus of culturally-responsive evidence-based treatments. We serve youth and their families as well as adults who have been impacted by traumatic events (e.g., physical abuse, sexual abuse, domestic violence, victims of crime, sexual assault, combat violence). Our target population includes three under-served groups in our community: (1) Hispanic youth and their families, (2) youth involved in the child welfare system and their caregivers, and (3) military youth and their families. The Center represents a strong community-academic partnership between Mental Health Partners (MHP), the community-based behavioral health treatment center in Boulder and Broomfield Counties, and the University of Colorado-Boulder’s Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence (CSPV). The Center will develop and implement a trauma screening and referral system, as well as a comprehensive assessment protocol. CSPV will provide training, implementation support, and fidelity monitoring for the following evidence-based practices to MHP clinicians and local community-based referral sources: Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), TF-CBT-Child Traumatic Grief (CTG), Culturally Modified-Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CM-TF-CBT), Alternatives for Families: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (AF-CBT), and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT).
