Sixth Annual Trauma Informed Care Summit


The purpose of the Summit is to move our systems beyond trauma informed to trauma competent through:

  • Advancing the understanding of the role of culture in understanding trauma including an awareness of disparity as well as practical tools and guidance in responding to trauma;
  • Providing information to advance trauma competence in communities, agencies, and organizations;
  • Supporting opportunities for networking among like-minded individuals;
  • Advancing Ohio’s trauma-informed approaches with consistent messages.
