Freedom from Trauma, Violence, and Addiction
as a Vital Condition for Well Being
The second learning series event, held on November 18th, is focused on freedom from trauma, violence, and addiction. The impacts of trauma, violence, and addiction on human life are far-reaching. Adverse childhood experiences and toxic environments can harm health and well-being across a lifespan and generations. Unfortunately, quality mental health and addiction care has long been difficult to access, hard to afford, and too uncoordinated, and underfunded to provide real healing.
To address our mental, emotional, and social health needs as whole persons, and particularly the loss, trauma, and substance misuse occurring in the wake of COVID-19, we must move toward ensuring everyone has access to integrated, comprehensive, multi-sector, community-based care, solidly anchored in the promotion of mental health and emotional resilience.
Food as a Vital Condition for Well Being
The first learning series event, held on October 21st, is focused on food, a basic need for health and safety. Learn more about the Vital Condition of Basic Needs for Health and Safety and how to ensure a safe and equitable food system for your community.
The learning series is supported by the Thriving Together: A Springboard for Equitable Recovery and Resilience. Learn more about the Springboard below.
