Referrals for Mental Health Services

Mental health services address the immediate and long-term effects of child abuse-related trauma to the child as well as the stress a family may experience in many areas of their life following a child's disclosure of abuse. The victim witness advocate assigned to the case will provide the child and non-offending family members with referrals for mental health services in their community customized to meet the each family's cultural needs.
