The mission of Volunteer Behavioral Health is to empower those who utilize our services in such a manner as to enable them to develop their potential and improve their quality of life.  Volunteer was formed as a parent organization to five mental health centers.  Each mental health center has a history of over 20 years of community based services for seriously and persistently mentally ill adults, severely emotionally disturbed children and adolescents, and persons with alcohol and drug treatment needs.  VBHCS serves 31 counties in Middle Tennessee, most of which are rural communities. This grant will allow the addition of the Healing from Childhood Trauma program, which will provide specialty trauma treatment for children who have experienced sexual and/or physical abuse in Putnam County.   Outcomes include improvements in self-worth, positive self-image and reduced effects of trauma in 90% of 27 children completing the program.
