On September 19, 2016, at 3 p.m. ET, OJJDP will host a 1-hour webinar “Emerging Opportunities to Use Medicaid to Support Trauma Services in Schools.” This webinar will highlight flexibilities available to states for providing and funding trauma services in schools through Medicaid. Participants will learn how Medicaid can support trauma screening and evidence-based trauma interventions and how schools can use Medicaid funding to provide these services to students in need.
Register for the webinar.
This webinar is presented as part of the Defending Childhood State Policy Initiative
. The OJJDP-administered initiative provides technical assistance to help states develop, modify, and implement policy and practice that reduce children’s exposure to violence, consistent with recommendations
from the Attorney General's National Task Force on Children Exposed to Violence.
