We want to remind you to be sure to register for our upcoming summit, “Child Trauma and COVID-19: An NCTSN Summit Supporting the Long-Term Recovery of Our Nation’s Children and Families – Sustaining Systems, Engaging Communities, & Transforming Care,” scheduled for July 27-28. The link to register appears at the bottom of this message.
The planning team has been working hard these last few months, and over 140 Network participants have contributed ideas and content through “Think Tanks” focusing on COVID-19’s impact on 1) Grief and Loss; 2) Schools; 3) Suicide and Substance Use; 4) Maltreatment and Interpersonal Violence; and 5) Disparities. Many will have roles presenting on panels and leading discussions during the summit itself.
We are excited about this event, and believe that this will be a great opportunity to think about some of the ramifications of what our vulnerable children and families have been going through these past 15 months — how the pandemic has impacted services; how specific groups have been disproportionally affected and how that will influence long-term recovery in their communities; and how providers, agencies, and systems have encountered challenges while trying to support recovery following the pandemic. You’ll also hear about innovative approaches that agencies and providers have initiated to address recovery challenges and support healing. Please spread the word to your partners, including those who are not currently Network members, because the summit is open to everyone.
