Creating Trauma-Sensitive Communities

Friday, May 12 from10 AM - 4 PM
Registration begins at 9:00 AM. Lunch is included in the $25 registration fee.

Trauma is extreme stress that overwhelms a person's ability to cope. It can be a single event, a series of events, or a chronic condition, such as childhood neglect or domestic violence. Those who experience trauma as children or adults are much more likely to develop problems with mental and physical health and substance abuse. Trauma-informed communities acknowledge the role that trauma has played in people’s lives, recognize the symptoms of trauma, and shift their perspective from “What’s wrong with you?” to “What happened to you and how are you coping?"

  • Understand types of trauma and triggers
  • Discover positive ways to support those who have survived childhood and adult trauma
  • Prevent re-traumatization
  • Create a more caring congregation, organization, or agency

For anyone interested in reducing the effects of trauma, including:

  • Leaders and members of churches, businesses, non-profits, and agencies
  • Service providers in the fields of mental health, healthcare, and social services
  • People living with mental health challenges, their families and friends
  • Community members


Honest, Open, and Proud: Addressing the Stigma of Mental Health
You asked, we listened: a training just for people living with a mental health challenge.

Friday, May 12: 5:30 - 8:30 PM and Sat. May 13: 8:30 AM - noon
Registration begins at 5 PM Friday with snacks. Saturday’s breakfast and lunch are included in the $15 registration fee.

The #1 best practice for eliminating the stigma of mental health is for people living with these challenges is to share their stories. If you have a story to share, you may be wondering who to tell, what to say, and if there are downsides to disclosing. We’ll explore these topics and also take a look at the stories we tell ourselves to discern
helpful and hurtful self-attitudes.
