Residential Trauma-Informed Care

Residential Trauma-Informed Care for Children & Adolescents

Wyoming Behavioral Institute offers residential trauma-informed care for children and adolescents affected by emotional trauma and mental health crises. It provides a supportive place for healing in which young adult patients can develop new skills and learn appropriate methods of self-expression.

The program is intended for youths who have experienced trauma and face lasting mental and emotional effects from it. Complex trauma exposures include loss, neglect, witnessing, maltreatment and separation. These experience can lead to post-traumatic stress and other complex clinical symptoms such as:

  • Behavioral difficulties
  • Relationship struggles
  • Decline in academic performance
  • High-risk behaviors (substance abuse, sexual risk taking, etc.)

Children and adolescents receive the same care but reside on separate units. The Pathfinder Unit is for children ages 8 to 13, and the Pathways Unit is for adolescents ages 14 to 17. Please read our Pathfinders and Pathways handbooks for more details.
