Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. Margaret Mead

May Informational/Educational Program: Wednesday, May 6, 2015 at 7:30 pm at Mather Hospital; Conference Rooms One and Two:

Presenter Lonnie Mathis will be speaking about Trauma:

Defining trauma, Sources of trauma; How trauma and mental health can intersect; Trauma informed practice, and their application in peer support. Lonnie is a trauma peer support group facilitator and Co-Founder of Transitions to Freedom. Lonnie is a trauma peer support group facilitator for Transitions to Freedom. What is Trauma?Trauma occurs when an external threat overwhelms a persons coping resources. It can result in specific symptoms of psychological or emotional distress, or it can affect many aspects of the persons life over a period of time. Sometimes people arent even aware that the challenges they face are related to trauma that occurred earlier in life. Trauma is unique to each individualthe most violent events are not always the events that have the deepest impact. Trauma can happen to anyone, but some groups are particularly vulnerable due to their circumstances, including women and children, people with disabilities, and people who are homeless or living in institutions. Trauma-informed services dont ask, Whats wrong with you? They ask, What happened to you?

There will be NO Educational/Informational meetings during June, July and August. We will reconvene in September.

Come join us.
