Trauma-Informed EC 

Supporting Trauma-Informed Care & Polices for
EC Organizations & Providers


Trauma-Informed EC Advisory Coalition 

The lifelong impacts of trauma on children and adults is widely known.  For the last decade, Montana has been dedicated to addressing the impacts of trauma as demonstrated in the 2019 Montana State Health Improvement Plan.  


The Montana Head Start Collaboration Office, the Center for Children, Families & Workforce Development, the Montana Early Childhood Services Bureau, and the National Native Children's Trauma Center are just a few of the dedicated groups working in the early childhood field to increase trauma-informed knowledge and practices.

In 2022, the Montana Trauma-Informed Early Childhood Advisory Coalition (MTTIEC) joined these efforts with the goal to support the coordination, expansion and accessibility of trauma-informed trainings and services for early childhood professionals throughout Montana.
