“STAT is a mental health screening and assessment program, located at the Alameda County Assessment Center. When a child is taken into protective custody by Alameda County Child Protective Services or the police, s/he is brought to the Assessment Center, a child-friendly receiving center where the child can comfortably wait until placement with a relative, foster home or group home is found. This training identifies and helps to develop the skills that care providers will need to provide a safe and comfortable environment for foster youth. Participants will work together to determine needs of foster youth by modifying program culture to support these practices. ”
