Collective Impact Trauma-Informed Care Team

​​​​​Our Mission​: To promote the integration of trauma-informed practices into children’s mental health services by increasing the knowledge and skills for families, communities, and the current and future workforce.​

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 training for the workforce on relevant trauma-informed care topics with the goal of implementing trauma-informed care practices. Current training is on COVID-19 and Trauma-Informed Care – Collective Trauma 101​. Two training segments are available for viewing and each have a discussion toolkit for further learning. Segments are: 1) Definitions & General Information, and 2) Strategies for Coping. ​ 

Prior 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. ​
