The Catalyst Center Presents: Community Listening Session #1 Around Addressing ACEs on 8/26
10am on August 26
The Catalyst will be embarking on a yearlong systems change and engagement initiative, in close collaboration with the National Council for Behavioral Health, working to raise the capacity of providers and the agencies that structure their supports to Advance Trauma-Informed Communities. The Catalyst is a proud partner and grant recipient of the ACEs Aware Initiative. In the month of August, the Catalyst invites community-based providers and allied professionals to engage in generative dialogue about what this journey means and how to actualize this change – for a community to build a movement around a child, family, or individual once an ACE is identified – defining how we as a collective choose resilience as our pathway to healing.
