Program Description: The Center for Child & Family Health (CCFH) has maintained a trauma-focused outpatient therapy clinic since its inception in 1996.

Our clinicians are proficient in the use of several evidence-based treatments (EBTs) with children and families. CCFH is also home to a number of trainers endorsed by the treatment developers; their work has gained CCFH a statewide and national reputation for training agencies to implement and sustain these treatments.

NC CTP has been in operation since 2006, serving as a statewide platform for the implementation and support of an evidence-based child trauma treatment, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. In 2013, the North Carolina General Assembly voted to fund NC CTP through an annually-recurring appropriation, administered by the NC Division of Mental Health/Developmental Disabilities/Substance Abuse Services, to support an array of child mental health EBTs across North Carolina.
