Collective Impact Trauma-Informed Care Team

​​​​​Our Vision: Wisconsin’s children are safe, nurtured and supported to achieve their optimal mental health and well-being. Systems are family-friendly, easy to navigate, equitable, and inclusive of all people. ​

Why We MeetThe following indicators are some of the topics we are tracking which drive the Trauma-Informed Care Team and illustrate the current state of children’s mental health and well-being:

  • Indicators that measure trauma such as: low income youth, foster care placements, child abuse and neglect
  • Adverse Childhood Experiences

See the current data on these indicators by reviewing our most recent Child Well-Being Dashboard

How We Improve SystemsThe Trauma-Informed Care Team has developed and offered statewide workshops on relevant trauma-informed care topics that educate and equip the workforce to implement trauma-informed care practices in their organizations.  Topics have included:  

  • Vicarious Trauma/Secondary Trauma/Self-Care
  • Enhancing Family Engagement by Understanding Cultural and Historical Trauma
  • Operationalizing Trauma-Informed Care in Your Organization
  • Working with Children and Families in the Home: Safety as a Foundation of Trauma-Informed Care

Our Current Partners: Members of the Trauma-Informed Care Team include lived experience leaders, tribal nation, state departments (Department of Health Services, Department of Corrections, Department of Public Instruction), local county/city health departments, non-profit organizations focused on trauma-informed care and children/families, and healthcare systems. ​
