In 2016, the New York State Office of Mental Health and Coordinated Care Services, Inc. (CCSI) convened trauma-informed care champions from around the state to connect and collaborate with one another. At the conclusion of that extraordinary day, the message was clear: we can accelerate trauma-responsive practice change efforts by being better connected to one another.
Through funding made available from the NYS Office of Mental Health, CCSI, Inc. is pleased to launch this virtual network to enhance resources, collaboration and communication among individuals and agencies implementing trauma-responsive practices. Design, content and focus of the NYS Trauma-Informed Network was informed by cross-sector representation of Trauma-Informed Champions across New York. Our collective vision is that the site will allow individuals and organizations to connect to one another, share training or event information, and to easily obtain resources to enhance their own work in becoming more trauma-responsive.
Appropriate for all age populations and with a cross-sector focus, traumainformedny.org will support true integrated care from a trauma-informed, trauma-sensitive lens. From a convenient central and virtual platform, this statewide network will shape and accelerate trauma-responsive activity across New York State, supporting a true statewide System of Care.
For more than 25 years, CCSI has partnered with organizations across NYS to provide the specialized management services, technical assistance, and implementation support needed to deliver innovative, high quality services across the behavioral health and human services
