Breaking the cycle of childhood trauma in rural Montana

WARNING: This piece includes references to suicide and sexual abuse that may be disturbing to some viewers.

Trauma experienced in childhood is often passed down from generation to generation. In rural Montana, scarce mental health resources and stigmas about seeking treatment are making the crisis worse. Special correspondent Cat Wise and producer Leah Nagy look at what’s being done to break that cycle of trauma. It’s part of our series, “Invisible Scars: America’s Childhood Trauma Crisis.”
