About the project: The Trenton Health Team has been awarded a two-year grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to support a far-ranging educational and training program in trauma-informed care. This project will provide training for health care providers, emergency responders, educators, and others to address adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and toxic stress in the Trenton community. Principal objectives for the Foundations for a Trauma-Informed Culture of Health project are to:
- Build awareness regarding the impact of trauma on our community.
- Increase competence in handling this issue among frontline staff in a range of settings that go well beyond the traditional behavioral healthcare environment, to include schools, emergency rooms, outpatient clinics, and law enforcement.
- Increase the use of ACE and behavioral screenings, administered in a trauma-informed and culturally/linguistically appropriate way, supported by a referral protocol that will connect more residents to the services they need.
