  3. Developed weekly outreach plan—to include meetings with stakeholders, paid advertisements, social media post and speaking engagements.

  4. In FY21, the TF-CBT target population expanded to include youth impacted by trauma.

  5. The TF-CBT Therapist participated in Local Care Team meetings and provided education to families about the model and provided referral packets.

The TF-CBT portion of the program will not continue in the second have of FY21.
