TRUST Tool

TRUST

The Trauma Responsive Understanding Self-Assessment Tool (TRUST) is a strength-based self-assessment tool that provides organizations with a “snapshot” of their progress toward becoming more trauma-informed.

The tool employs the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) 10 Implementation Domains as a framework for guiding survey participants through a sequence of questions assessing the implementation of trauma-informed practices. The TRUST allows organizations to view aggregated survey results from their leadership and staff.

A concise, real-time report with results offers recommendations for bolstering trauma-informed practices. This assessment can be used for initial benchmarking and may be repeated at selected intervals to gauge progress and identify the next steps.
