The Traumatic Loss Coalition for Youth Program (TLC) at RBHS-University Behavioral HealthCare is New Jersey's primary youth suicide prevention program and is funded by the Department of Children and Families, Division of Child Behavioral Health Services. The dual mission of the TLC is excellence in suicide prevention and trauma response assistance to schools following unfortunate losses due to suicide, homicide, accident and illness.

    The TLC has operated as a county-based collaborative for 12 years with a TLC Coordinator in each county. These county Coordinators provide meetings throughout the year bringing together school personnel, mental health clinicians, juvenile justice personnel, law enforcement officials, social service agencies, child welfare workers and many others who work closely with youth. The meetings are effective forums for reviewing county crisis events, identifying service needs, and providing professional development through the inclusion of an educational component. Speakers for the educational component are experts in topics pertinent to the needs of youth.  

    Check back soon for the 2018 -2019 meeting dates.
