Mikailia Child Advocacy Center
"You are already strong, be brave! "- Mikailia
What We Do
We are a community-based Multidisciplinary Interview Team (MDIT) that responds to child abuse through a trauma-informed, research-based approach. At the Mikailia Child Advocacy Center (MCAC) we strive to reduce the number of interviews a child has to endure. At the MCAC, the child tells a trained forensic interviewer what happened to them in a child-friendly environment. Then, the MDIT makes a decision together regarding how to best help the child based on the interview and the trauma that child has suffered. Our collaborative team consists of professionals from various agencies, including but not limited to:
- Lassen County District Attorney's Office
- Lassen County Victim Witness
- Lassen County Behavioral Health
- Lassen County Child & Family Services
- Lassen County Sheriff's Department
- Susanville Police Department
- Lassen Family Services, Inc.
- Banner Lassen Medical Center
MCAC Satisfaction Survey
Please help us evaluate our Child Advocacy Center. We are interested in your honest opinion, whether positive or negative. Your feedback will help determine what we may need to work on to serve you and other families better. Completed surveys take only a couple of minutes and are anonymous. Thank you!
