The Stress and Early Brain Growth resource provides critical information on the types of trauma young people may face, the toll it can take on a child's mental, physical, social, and emotional health and ways to bring about resilience and healing. This resource is written in simple to understand language and provides specific steps that adults can take to lessen trauma's impact. Further, it provides a list of state and national resources that have additional information on this important topic.
This resource was created through a partnership between Families Together, Inc., Kansas Parent Information Resource Center (KPIRC), and the TASN School Mental Health Initiative (SMHI). (Updated 2019.02)share
