Trauma Response Team


The Trauma Response Team consists of 90 trained professionals, all who work for the Anoka-Hennepin School system. The team is comprised of school counselors, social workers, and nurses.

The primary role of the Trauma Response Team is:

  • Support building administration in time of crisis
  • Counsel and monitor students in need
  • Enable the school to return to normal routine as soon as possible
  • Make referrals and network with the community
  • Address and determine best practices for counseling and student safety
