Many people have experienced childhood and/or adult trauma that has a lasting impact on their mental and physical health-informed health care has five core components: a foundation grounded in trauma-informed principles and a team approach; an environment that is calm, safe, and empowering; education about the impacts of current and past trauma on health; and inquiry about and response to recent and past trauma that includes onsite or community-based resources and treatments. Adopting trauma-informed practices can potentially improve engagement, treatment adherence, and health outcomes, as well as provider and staff wellness.

Cultivating a Trauma Care Plan
