Post-trauma training

The profound impact violent events have on children's mental health is undeniable, potentially causing lasting trauma. For months to come, it’s likely some of our community’s children will show signs and symptoms of post-traumatic stress reaction related to KC’s parade violence as well as everyday trauma. With your strong knowledge and community influence, we can work together to improve mental health outcomes now and in the future.

If you are interested in learning more about upcoming training opportunities available for those that work with children following disasters or experiencing everyday trauma, please complete our interest form.

Here you can find information on effective diabetes management in school and education and resources provided by Children's Mercy experts.

 If you have questions about a child who is sick or injured and their primary care provider is not available, call (816) 234-3188 for advise from the Children's Mercy Nurse Advice line. We are available to answer your questions 24/7.
