Jason Lang Talks Child Trauma on 'For the People' Podcast

Connecticut has made significant investments to address childhood trauma across a number of systems including child welfare, behavioral health, juvenile justice, education, and pediatrics.

CHDI's Vice President for Mental Health Initiatives, Jason Lang was interviewed by John Voket on 'For the People' podcast to discuss CHDI's work to address childhood trauma and our school-based program to assist younger students experiencing traumatic stress called 'Bounce Back.'

Listen to Jason discuss how CHDI's efforts have begun to bring trauma-informed programs to those serving the state’s youngest children (birth to five) and how integrating mental health services in school settings, including preventative efforts such as promotion of social emotional development in the pre-school and elementary school years, promotes significant benefits for both schools and students.
