DFPM-RED’s Project PLAY developer Dr. Nicola Edge is featured in this new article on the Arkansas Trauma Resource Initiative for Schools (T R I S*).
“We also want to be able to assist children and families in accessing mental health services when they need them. We know mental health treatment works, and so part of the role of TRIS is to support children and families in accessing proven effective trauma treatment services.”
*T R I S provides training, resources, and other support to all school personnel across the state. The initiative is a collaboration between UAMS, the Arkansas Department of Education (A D E) and other key stakeholders. It is funded by a generous behavioral health grant from the Blue and You Foundation.
