Synopsis: This study investigated the influence of trauma exposure on service use, expenditures, and functional outcomes on a sample of child/youth recipients of Case Management Services in Maine. The findings indicate that children with trauma histories were significantly more likely to use high-cost mental health services, primary healthcare, and emergency room services at higher expense than children without trauma histories. Trauma survivors were also less likely to experience stability or improvement in functioning over the study period. The findings are discussed as they relate to the ability of systems of care to adequately identify and provide effective treatment to child/youth trauma survivors.
