Human Trafficking Awareness Month: Offering hope and healing to youth in need

Through your gift, you are contributing to our mission to unlock and nurture human potential in people living with emotional, behavioral or cognitive differences.

Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud or coercion to lure victims and force them into labor or commercial sexual exploitation. During Human Trafficking Awareness Month in January, Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health wants to highlight the urgent need to prioritize the fight against this form of modern-day slavery.

“Human trafficking is an issue that affects every country around the globe, and children are especially vulnerable,” said Devereux Senior Vice President and Chief Clinical/Medical Officer Yolanda Graham, M.D. “We want to help victims who have experienced this unimaginable trauma to heal; realize their inherent strength; and embrace a future full of promise.”

About Devereux’s CSEC program

Devereux’s Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) program provides comprehensive treatment for children and adolescents who have experienced emotional, physical and sexual trauma.

“In many cases, human traffickers groom their victims by offering compliments, money and other material items,” explained Devereux Arizona Clinical and CSEC Coordinator Heather Brady, M.A., LPC, BHP. “Children may not fully comprehend what is happening or recognize that they are being victimized.”
