Children's Complex Trauma Readiness Assessment 

The Readiness Assessment, a short questionnaire, was conducted to provide key information from Health Homes and Care Management Agencies which will help to guide and tailor trainings and resources. In addition to helping to identify needs and making training as helpful as possible, your results will be sent to you and benchmarked to the aggregate results of your peers around the state.

The completed assessment was due close-of-business Wednesday, February 8th.  
Aggregate results of the Complex Trauma Readiness Assessment were shared during the March 29th Health Home Implementation Webinar
Link to slides:

Individual results have been sent to the individual who submitted the readiness assessment.

If you are a Health Home or Care Management Agency who has not completed and is interested in completing the Readiness Assessment please email for more information.
