H: Healing children after trauma by
providing evidence-based therapies free of charge.
Over the past decade, the PARTNERS Clinic has provided free
state-of-the-art mental health services to traumatized children,
adolescents and their families in an outpatient clinic. We
provide outreach, assessment, psychotherapy, and case management
services. Therapies used are Trauma-Focused Cognitive
Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT; for sexually-abused youth and their
non-offending caregivers) and Alternatives for Families: A
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (AF-CBT; for physical abuse and other
forms of family violence). The Clinic serves youth, ages
4-17, who are experiencing posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD),
depression, and/or serious behavior problems (e.g., aggression).
