Laptop and headphones

About this Resource: 

The prevalence and impact of trauma is undeniable. Statistics show that as many as 90% of the people who enter the public behavioral health system have experienced trauma. The adverse childhood experiences study (ACE) demonstrates the correlation between early childhood adversity and negative health outcomes in adulthood. In Part 1 of this series 'Trauma and the Peer Perspective' CPS panelists examined the myriad of ways trauma is defined and how trauma is often addressed within behavioral health systems. Panelists also discussed how systems can create trauma and/or retraumatize those seeking help and shared how trauma informed peer support and services helped them in their recovery journey.
