LINK-KID: A Centralized Referral Service

The Child Trauma Training Center at UMass Medical School provides free support to parents, caregivers and child-serving professionals who need help connecting a child with an appropriate trauma intervention. LINK-KID staff:

  • Screen for trauma exposure and trauma-related symptoms.
  • Discuss appropriate treatment options with caregivers and/or referral sources.
  • Make a referral to an appropriate service.
  • Update caregivers and referral sources on the status of the youth’s referral on a regular basis.

LINK-KID maintains an active database of providers across the state trained in trauma-focused, evidence-based practices, including information about waitlists, language capacity and insurances accepted.
