Kelly Hostetler, executive director of the local United Way, said the idea for the Children's Trauma Assessment Group started with Jim Henry, a former St. Joseph County Department of Human Services worker who has gone on to become a professor at Western Michigan University.
Hostetler said Henry was concerned about the delay between a child's experience with some type of trauma and an assessment by a mental health official to determine the severity of the child's trauma.
Henry, who still maintains close contact with officials in St. Joseph County, met in December with Probate Court Judge David Tomlinson and raised the idea of an assessment center in Centreville.
After Tomlinson met with Henry, Tomlinson turned to a few county officials and made a commitment to ensure St. Joseph County has an assessment center of its own.

Sacks called Dr. James Henry, a professor and director of the Child Trauma Assessment Center at Western Michigan University, as an expert witness Thursday.
During questioning from Sacks, Henry explained dissociation as a phenomenon of the mind in which "life becomes like watching something happening to someone else and not yourself.
A series of traumatic events, including his biological mother giving up her parental rights, the death of his dog, the suicide of a close friend, breaking up with his girlfriend and his family losing its home, contributed to the symptoms, Henry said.
Henry said Eliason was experiencing "intrusive and racing thoughts," symptoms of dissociation, that led him to kill his step-grandfather, Jesse Miles.
"It's this feeling that it's not happening to me, like watching a movie of yourself," Henry said.
Wild and Henry were in disagreement on whether Dakotah's debating between suicide and homicide on the night of the shooting was premeditation or a series of "racing and intrusive thoughts," as Henry claimed.
After being questioned by Sacks and Wild, Schofield addressed Henry.
Henry said a defense attorney should "want to know why a boy who had never harmed anyone would kill someone who he loves."
"Those three reports didn't address the question. With a trauma lens, it makes complete sense," said Henry, who specializes in child trauma.
