Atlantic County Traumatic Loss Coalition for Youth

The Traumatic Loss Coalition for Youth of Atlantic County provides educators, mental health and law enforcement personnel with a vital, supportive structure for networking to benefit our children and youth. The primary responsibility of the coalition is to provide assistance to school personnel as they manage significant losses and traumatic events that impact the school community.

The New Jersey Division of Mental Health Services (DMHS) has funded the project which is administered by the Traumatic Loss Coalitions for Youth Program (TLC) at RUTGERS-University Behavioral Health Care.
