The Trauma Informed movement periodically has online and community events to raise awareness, facilitate change, and speak out on policy decisions. Please consider participating in upcoming events!
Join us for a Twitter Chat regarding Hillary Clinton’s Comprehensive Agenda on Mental Health! If you haven’t seen it yet – please take a look. Despite Congress declaring psychological trauma as a public health crisis and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration having one of its six strategic initiatives focusing on trauma because of the prevalence and impact on survivors, the proposed “comprehensive” agenda is absent any focus on trauma.
Here are the details about the chat:
Date: Monday, September 5, 2016
Time: 5 pm to 8 pm, EST
Hashtags: #TraumaMHPriority and #TraumaInformed
We invite all to comment on three questions. Our collective voices can make a difference! Please participate:
- How important is it for Hillary Clinton to address psychological trauma in her comprehensive national policy on mental health?
- Why do you think trauma should be included in our national policy agenda?
- Should prevention be a major focus in the national policy on mental health?
When responding, please include the hashtags so we can follow your input on this important national issue.
