Project Thrivever en español
Project Thrive is a partnership between SaintA, Boys & Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee (BGCGM) and the Medical College of Wisconsin. Thanks to a $2 million grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), we will provide increased access to evidence-based, trauma- informed assessments and treatments for children and families in the Milwaukee area.
Services will be provided at BGCGM sites to provide easy and accessible care in a trusted community setting. A key component of Project Thrive is data analysis, provided in partnership with the Medical College of Wisconsin.
Project Thrive will serve children and their families who have experienced:
- Family Separation
- Other trauma and mental health challenges
- Creating and sustaining effective relationships within the community to reduce the stigma around trauma and mental health treatment
- Enhancing the screening and assessment process to identify youth needs for treatment earlier and with greater efficiency
- Increasing access to effective trauma-focused mental health services for diverse and economically disadvantaged children and families in Milwaukee
- Providing training in trauma-informed practices to communities and child-serving systems; and
- Creating sustainability for continued mental health treatment after completion of SAMHSA funding
