Published 22 days ago

For over 30 years, the Violence Intervention Program (VIP) has been the leader in building transformative programs that raise the standard of care for all victims of child abuse, neglect, and sexual assault in Los Angeles County. Today, VIP functions as a public-private partnership between the publicly-funded VIP Children’s Medical Village at the LAC+USC Medical Center and our non-profit, the VIP Community Mental Health Center, Inc. (VIP-CMHC). Our history of quality mental health care is due in large part to the dedicated and talented employees whose efforts have helped improve the lives of children, transitional age youth, and their families.

PROGRAM SUMMARY

For many of our families, getting to VIP for weekly appointments can create a challenge due to limited transportation options or work commitments. For other children, visiting VIP can be too stressful and disruptive, especially for a child that has suffered extreme trauma. For this reason, VIP has a vibrant and growing school-based therapy program, delivering services right where children often need it the most; at their school. Through strengthening relationships with administrators and providing a much-needed layer of support, our clinicians are utilizing area schools to be better aware of positive mental health and serve as a stronger support structure for their students.
