Trauma Informed Care Conference 2013

Where There Is Breath, There Is Hope: Transforming Practices Through Trauma Informed Care

As The Up Center began its journey toward transformation into a Trauma Informed Care organization, we reached out to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) for technical assistance and received a training grant. We are delighted to share the expertise that SAMHSA brings in the field of Trauma Informed Care with all of our community partners and stakeholders by spearheading this regional training event. Please join us as we move to create an informed community of peers and providers who can empower and support those impacted by trauma by providing services and care that promote recovery and healing. After all, it is Up to all of us.
