The Terrorism and Disaster Center (TDC) is a Category II Center of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN), a national network funded by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration to improve the standard of care for traumatized children and to increase their access to care.
TDC focuses on achieving an effective, nationwide mental health response to the impact of terrorism and disasters on children, families, and communities.
TDC works to achieve this goal through the development and evaluation of trainings and educational materials, interventions, and services aimed at addressing the mental health needs of those who experience terrorism and disaster-induced trauma.
