Resilience and Recovery
Trauma can have a long-lasting and broad impact on our lives that may create a feeling of hopelessness. Yet, when we focus on our strengths and clear steps we can take toward wellness we are more likely to be resilient and recover.

1.    Path – We recognize the value of instilling hope by seeking to develop a clear path towards wellness that addresses stress and trauma.

2.    Strengths – We proactively identify and apply strengths to promote wellness and growth, rather than focusing singularly on symptom reduction.

3.    Practices – We are aware of and have access to effective treatments, skills, and personal practices that support recovery and resiliency.

“As someone who aged out of foster care into homelessness and struggled to say in school and keep employment, advocacy became my best therapy. I was a space where I cultivated resiliency, and built community that cared. Trauma Transformed is an example where those of us with lived experience can build resilience and transform systems.”

–Susan Manzi, Executive Director, Youth in Mind
