SAMHSA Trauma Resilient Community Project
The TRC Initiative is a city-wide program, funded by SAMHSA, and managed by the Office for Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods, that seeks to promote resilience and equity for Louisville’s youth and families disproportionately affected by trauma, race-based trauma, systemic inequities, violence, and civil unrest.
Our partners include the University of Louisville’s Kent School of Social Work, Seven Counties Services, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, the Center for Trauma Resilient Communities (CTRC), and Spalding University’s Center for Behavioral Health.
This initiative is…
1. Enhancing leadership and capacity for organizations to sustain a trauma-informed system of care.
2. Increasing knowledge and skills of personnel who make referrals and/or provide services to youth and families regarding trauma, racial inequity, community violence, and related services.
3. Providing trauma-focused intervention services to children and families impacted by violence, and (4) evaluate the impact of the project.
Through our partnership with Seven Counties Services, and Spalding University Center for Behavioral Health, we offer AF-CBT and RTT. View or download the flyer below.
We are offering free Youth Mental Health First Aid Trainings in the next coming months through TRC. Certifications will be provided upon completion of the full training. Click here for details and registration links.
