Healed People Heal Communities: A Trauma-Informed Approach to Family & Community Wellness

Healed People Heal Communities: A Trauma-Informed Approach to Family & Community Wellness

On Nov 16th   Building Connections: the Sexual Assault & Mental Health Project of MHANYS & NYSCASA is sponsoring a Seminar titled:

“Healed People Heal Communities: A Trauma-Informed Approach to Family & Community Wellness.”  Location: United Methodist Church, Schenectady, NY.

It’s a difficult time for families and communities right now both locally and across our nation.

This seminar is an opportunity for Interfaith leaders, Human Services providers and families to learn from each other on how best to support individuals, families and communities that are struggling.

Objectives for the seminar include:

  • A presentation on a trauma-informed approach for identifying coping skills and behaviors developed from experiencing traumatic stress and loss.
  • A panel discussion from inter-faith leaders and service providers that explore the success and challenges faced in partnering with multicultural families and communities that experience traumatic stress and loss.
  • Group exercises that focus on exploring multicultural perceptions about mental health and illness.

Our intention is in learning from others about some of the unique challenges facing our families and communities and then strategize on how we can work together to be most supportive.
