Governor visits to dedicate new child trauma treatment center

Updated:
JOPLIN, MISSOURI -

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon visited Joplin on Tuesday to dedicate a new child trauma treatment center.

Since the tornado the Missouri legislature allocated more than $2 million too establish the center.

The new center will focus on education, and treatment of child behavioral concerns, with a focus on trauma-related issues.

"Talking to Superintendent Huff and others it has been very very important to them to make sure that kids that they saw that were beginning to act up or act out in ways they hadn't before, that could use some assistance, a facility of this type staffed with trained professionals that the Ozark Center and the network brings down here is very important to the rebuilding of Joplin," Governor Nixon said.
