Childhood-Trauma Learning Collaborative (C-TLC)

Mental Health Resources for New England Educators

Yale University’s Program for Recovery and Community Health (PRCH), in partnership with CEI, designed the Childhood-Trauma Learning Collaborative (C-TLC) to strengthen mental health supports that address the needs of children who have experienced/are at risk of experiencing significant trauma.

C-TLC provides technical assistance on school-based mental health services.  Our goals are to:

  • Foster alliances to address the needs of children and youth who have experienced or are at risk of experiencing significant trauma.
  • Provide publicly available, free training, and technical assistance to elementary and secondary teachers, principals, school psychologists, and other school staff.
  • Accelerate adoption and implementation of mental health evidence-based practices.

C-TLC Heart Centered Learning® Stipends for Schools: Stipends of $500, $1,000 and $1,500 will be made to schools in New England. Our goal is to assist schools in implementing programs to alleviate trauma and support children/youth with behavioral or emotional challenges, including those at risk of developing a mental illness.
