Yale University 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 to school-based mental health services in the six states that are a part of the Region 1 grouping for C-TLC activities: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

We have three objectives:

  • 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 is funded by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and is part of the New England Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (New England MHTTC) Network.

Through the C-TLC, we work to help our 24 Fellows from each of the six New England states—teachers, administrators, school psychologists, and other school staff—vision, plan, and monitor implementation of compassionate practices that ameliorate the effects of trauma, amplify protective factors, and increase the availability of educated and nurturing adults and teachers within schools who can meet the mental health needs of students.
