Preventing and Treating Trauma

The RR Coalition is working on the following goals and strategies:

1) An empathetic community that recognizes how trauma impacts children and families and actively works to identify and address it

2) An integrated, child-serving system of care where trauma-informed public, private, and community providers prevent, treat, and respond to the needs of the children, families, and the broader community

The first phase of the Coalition focused on aligning key agencies and organizations in Richland County to develop a deeper understanding of the problem and then to collectively work to combat the negative lifelong consequences toxic stress causes children.

A series of one-on-one interviews and surveys were completed in the first quarter of 2018. The information gathered helped establish a framework/model to which the Coalition could react, update, and inform future action.
