Trauma & Justice Partnerships

The impact of trauma pervades our behavioral health system. There is consensus that a high percentage of justice involved men, women, and youth have experienced trauma.

Public Health has developed specialized programming to address the needs of this population and the national epidemic of children exposed to violence. These long-standing collaborations include:

  • law enforcement.

  • provider agencies.

  • consumers and families.

  • the courts.

  • district attorneys.

  • public defenders.

  • advocacy organizations.

  • community colleges.
