Synopsis: A secondary analysis of data from the National Impact Study of the SAMHSA-funded cross-site evaluation of the National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative was conducted to examine the diffusion of trauma-informed care into mental health agency policies/procedures, training programs, and service provision. Significant increases were found over time in mental health agencies’ use of trauma-informed policies and procedures related to trauma screening, assessment, and treatment; and in agencies' use of trauma-focused evidence-based practices.
