The Child HELP Partnership (CHP) mission is to better protect and heal families from trauma and its emotional impact. Founded in 2001, CHP is nationally recognized as a leading source for evidence-based mental health treatment and prevention of childhood trauma. Our vision is to replicate the Child HELP Partnership center’s well-documented results across the United States and abroad. The CHP team delivers free therapy in our clinic and community-based settings for children and their parents who have been exposed to violence.
In addition, CHP offers educational trainings to parents, other adults caring for children, and mental health professionals. Parents and caregivers are empowered with strategies to prevent trauma. Clinicians are empowered with scientifically-sound therapies that mitigate the impact of trauma. All programs embed evaluation systems so that they are continually modified and improved.
As we witness the tremendous pain experienced across the country from recent events and the pandemic, we recognize that talking about trauma and bereavement has never been more important.
Child HELP Partnership is dedicated to helping children and families facing difficult times and has added targeted services for COVID -19 related challenges. Our team has provided education and mental health services for families after 9/11 and Hurricane Sandy, and continues to help our community with the following COVID-19 online workshops and trainings:
For parents and other caregivers, we offer a free 1-hour discussion on typical reactions to crises and strategies to help—the next one is June 23rd at 8:00pm. We also offer free mental health services for trauma and grief. (Click for Workshops)
For professionals who work with children and families (e.g., clergy, educators, child welfare), we offer a 2.5-hour in-depth presentation on children’s reactions to trauma and grief, risk and protective factors, and different levels of interventions. (Click Here for Trainings)
For mental health professionals, we offer training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Advanced TF-CBT for Traumatic Grief, and Making Connections, a group grief counseling. (Click Here for Trainings)
