About Mount Carmel CTAP

Mount Carmel’s Crime and Trauma Assistance Program (CTAP) offers evidence-based, outpatient mental health counseling for individuals impacted by trauma, as well as therapeutic and skill-building groups, clinical case management, advocacy, education, and training to community members. CTAP strives to create and utilize safe spaces, relationships, and trauma-informed care practices to help survivors take steps toward healing.

CTAP services are provided at no cost to individuals, and CTAP clinicians have specific training and experience working directly with people impacted by trauma, in order to provide high quality, trauma-focused care.

CTAP is able to provide services at no cost due to continued financial support from local and federal grants, as well as funds from the Mount Carmel Foundation. Visit the donation page to contribute to our program and choose to direct your gift to: Crime & Trauma Assistance Program.
