What we know
Adversity in childhood impacts health across a lifespan. Exposure to violence, loss, poverty and trauma increases chances of learning disorders, heart disease, and early death among other poor health outcomes. This is a national health problem.
We are a regional response
Responding to trauma in our communities can impact public systems and our workforce. We all benefit from a framework to understand this impact and sustain practices that foster mutual wellness and recovery.
Together, we are stronger
What we do
Training: The center will identify promising practices at the regional level so that more Bay Area residents have access to the best care possible.
Policy: As a regional policy hub, the center aligns policies and practices across county lines and sectors, putting our people before our systems.
Care Coordination: Our public health systems can be fragmented and challenging to navigate. The center facilitates systems coming together to make sure that every door to care is an open door.
Who we are
Seven counties working together as one regional, coordinated, trauma-informed Bay Area system of care: Alameda Contra Costa Marin San Mateo Santa Clara Santa Cruz San Francisco
