Purpose

The Statewide Collaborative on Trauma-Informed Care (SCTIC) aims to elevate trauma-informed policy in the Texas child welfare system by creating a statewide strategy to support system reform, organizational leadership, cross-systems collaboration, and community-led efforts with data-informed initiatives to develop champions, consensus, and funding. SCTIC began with a planning group with the Children’s Commission, Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute (MMHPI), Texas CASA, and the Department of Family and Protective Services.

SCTIC held a statewide meeting of TIC stakeholders on July 28, 2017, to review MMHPI’s completed report on the TIC environment in Texas, bring stakeholders together, and build consensus. After the presentation, there was a question and answer session with the authors, an open discussion of the report, and an active invitation to generate new ideas.

Under the leadership of Judge Darlene Byrne, the SCTIC established four Strategic Workgroups to help achieve their goals: Child Welfare System Reform; Organizational Leadership; Cross-systems Collaboration; and Funding, Data, & Evaluation.


Important Announcements

The Judicial Summit on Mental Health will be held in Houston on October 22-23, 2018. The Judicial Commission on Mental Health is joining forces with the Supreme Court Children’s Commission to bring together leaders in the child welfare, juvenile justice, and criminal justice court systems to build collaboration and develop strategies to strengthen our courts. This event will include opportunities to connect with colleagues, establish new relationships, and engage in learning sessions designed to address the issues specific to youth-serving and adult-serving courts.

All SCTIC members are invited to attend the Summit and are eligible for reimbursement of travel expenses, as applicable.
