Sheila Savannah, Managing Director
Ruben Cantu, Program Manager

The Great Lakes MHTTC and PTTC present this training for behavioral health and prevention practitioners in HHS Region 5: IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, and WI.

This session presents the Adverse Community Experiences and Resilience framework as a lens to understand community-level trauma, with a focus on its application in preventing and addressing substance misuse and mental health crisis.

The session will outline skills needed for a prevention workforce prepared to accelerate equity, justice, and community-trauma-informed approaches within vulnerable communities.

Learning Objectives:
1) Share the Adverse Community Experiences and Resilience (ACE|R) framework to identify how community-level trauma contributes to high rates of substance misuse and mental health crisis.

2) Identify why an equity and justice orientation is essential to upstream prevention approaches.

3) Highlight the skills and role for preventionists in applying health equity principles in their work across multiple systems, and discuss aspects of community change for mental health and wellbeing.

Certificates of attendance will be available to all who attend the session in full.
