Advocating for Better Mental Health Across El Paso, TX

We train local groups in trauma-informed care

All reactions and behaviors are a result of past events and traumas. When something bad happens to us, our brains form a trauma response that helps us avoid a similar traumatic experience. So to get to the root of any mental health or behavioral issue, we must first treat the trauma that caused it through trauma-informed care.

That's why El Paso Child Guidance Center advocates for trauma-informed care throughout the El Paso, TX community. By offering mental health education and outreach, we hope to increase trauma-informed care awareness and practices for children, teens, adults and families.

Support those who support youth

El Paso Child Guidance Center offers training and peer support to local agencies that work with children and youth. We have worked with:

  • Child Protective Services
  • El Paso County Juvenile Probation Department
  • El Paso school districts
  • Educational service centers
  • Federally qualified health centers

We'll coordinate a trauma-informed care team in your organization to act as first responders to a child in need. And we'll help ensure your organization is culturally grounded, client-centered and empowering for all children and families.
