Together We Can Do So Much
Yale University’s Program for Recovery and Community Health (PRCH) designed the Childhood-Trauma Learning Collaborative (C-TLC), in partnership with CEI, to strengthen mental health supports that address the needs of children who have experienced/are at risk of experiencing significant trauma. PRCH promotes the recovery, self-determination, and inclusion of people experiencing psychiatric disability, addiction, and discrimination through focusing on their strengths and the valuable contributions they have to make to their communities. It conducts collaborative research, evaluation, education, training, policy development, and consultation to transform behavioral health programs, agencies, and systems.
TeachLink powers the School Compassionate Culture Analytic Tool for Educators (S-CCATE) – an online assessment tool CEI developed – to plan for, implement, and interpret results of social emotional learning interventions that enhance the culture of compassion in school communities. C-TLC members schools and organizational participants enjoy free use of S-CCATE. TeachLink links teachers and administrators through easy to use forms, provides online digital submissions and approvals, and streamlines the compliance process in a paperless manner.
C-TLC is funded by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that leads public health efforts to advance the behavioral health of the nation and to improve the lives of individuals living with mental and substance use disorders, and their families.
C-TLC is part of the New England Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (New England MHTTC) Network. The core mission of the New England MHTTC is to use evidence-based means to disseminate evidence-based mental health best practices across its region. This region consists of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
