Trauma-informed care training provides health care teams and professionals with the tools to recognize the extent and effects of patients’ traumatic life experiences. Traumatic experiences, particularly those that take place during childhood, can have profound consequences on an individual’s health status and life quality, and they are often linked to higher rates of mental illness, addiction, and suicide.
The trauma-informed care program aims to help workers provide effective mental health care that takes into account patients’ past and present trauma. Using a trauma-informed approach in treatment will improve patients’ engagement levels and lead to better health outcomes.
