The Center for Mental Health Services in Pediatric Primary Care: Pediatric Integrated Care Collaborative (PICC) will increase the quality of child trauma services by integrating behavioral and physical health services, targeting traumatic stress exposure and recovery, extending accessibility of services by integrating trauma-informed behavioral health services with primary care, and promoting a sustainable integration.

Dissemination will also be facilitated through the center's six core sites, its links to the American Academy of Pediatrics, and its hosting of the National Network of Child Psychiatry Access Programs.

Uniformed Services University, School of Medicine, Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress

Funding Period: 
[2012 - 2016 and 2007 - 2011]
Description: 

The challenges of military children and families are substantial and require greater understanding, education, and services than they are currently receiving. Some of the most severe experiences that military children face are related to wartime stress: specifically, deployment of military parents to combat, parental injury or illness, or parental death. Little if any data exist in many of these areas. The Uniformed Services University Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress (USU CSTS) Child and Family Program is responsible for developing knowledge related to military childhood experiences, developing effective public education materials, and expanding and studying effective intervention strategies, all using a strength-based approach.

Though USU CSTS does not receive funding from SAMHSA, it functions as a Treatment and Services Adaptation Center within the NCTSN. The center serves as a consultant to the Network, acts as a knowledge development and dissemination center, and creates trauma-focused products specific to military families.
