Trauma-Informed Workshops (Virtual)

The milestone 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment found mental health to be a top priority in our community, and Lakeland began a journey to focus efforts on mental health resources, system level advocacy, and trauma-informed health care. Part of that journey is offering a range of trauma-informed care workshops. We invite you to take a look at what we offer and then take part as we work to make our community a place where optimal health is achievable for everyone.
