3033-19:  Setting a New Standard: Developing and Operationalizing an Innovative Trauma-Informed Approach  

In response to the national mental health crisis, CHOC Children's opened an 18-bed pediatric inpatient unit. An innovative, trauma-informed program was developed and operationalized with the aim of raising the standard for the provision of pediatric mental health care. As a result, we have seen extraordinary patient and staff outcomes.
