N.C. A&T working with Child Response Initiative

“Since 2008, Greensboro Police have referred more than 1,600 children and families to the Child Response Initiative, which provides early intervention to children who have been exposed to trauma.

“The program is expanding to include the growing numbers of victims. Experts with Greensboro Police, North Carolina A&T University, and Cone Health are pooling their efforts with 10 mental health providers and 30 community based agencies.”

News14 Carolina has a report that includes an interview Kelly Graves, associate professor in the A&T Department of Human Development and Services and executive director of the university’s Center for Behavioral Health.  Graves manages the Child Response Initiative.  More information on the expansion of the program is available from the City of Greensboro.
