What is trauma informed?

Trauma is a global public health crisis according to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention and is a concern for everyone.

Being a trauma informed county requires everyone to understand that different life experiences shape the options available to us and our way of being and can use this understanding to influence our interactions and decisions in work and daily life.

For leaders

Organisation leaders can shape culture and services to become more sensitive to trauma and support staff and those who come into contact with your services.
