Dear Upstream Partner,


We hope this message finds you well and safe. There are no words to describe how difficult the last month has been for our community. The resiliency of our residents and the critical support you continue to provide gives us hope for successful recovery efforts. 


We want to acknowledge all you have done and continue to do to support our community. In addition to personal losses you may have experienced, repeated exposure to the suffering of others takes its toll on the emotional and physical well-being of you and your staff.


With deep appreciation for your continued commitment to providing high quality services to vulnerable populations, Upstream would like to offer you and your staff the opportunity to participate in a Recovery and Healing Workshop presented by UC Davis. The workshop offers managers, supervisors and front-line staff critical tools to healthfully cope with secondary trauma. Below is a list of workshop dates and times.


This workshop meets the qualifications for 6 hours of continuing education credit for LMFTs, LCSWs, LCPPs and/or LEPs. If you or your staff would like to join us, please contact Sabrina Condon at or (707) 565-4367 to register.


Thank you, again, for all you do. Don't hesitate to reach out if there is any support we can offer.
