DCAC was created from a vision that children heal more effectively when supportive agencies work together as an integrated team.
Assessment and Mental Health Treatment
We use a developmentally sensitive, biologically respectful approach to coordinated health and mental health care for child trauma victims. Intensive, coordinated care management draws in all people involved in the child’s life- family members, foster parents, social service caseworkers, day care providers, prosecutors, victim advocates, doctors, teachers, and school personnel.
When child trauma victims need psychiatric care, onsite consultation is available through our growing partnership with Mental Health Corporation of Denver.
Through a partnerships with Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center, legal staff coordinate with our therapists and victim advocates to help “kinship” families, those where family members take in children who have been removed from their homes, to understand their legal rights.
