POSTPONED FROM DEC 10 to JAN 15!


Advocates for Health in Action (AHA) invites you to take the next step in community-wide movement to build resilience in Wake County and take action! AHA is hosting two special events on Monday, December 10, in support of the ACEs Resilience in Wake County Initiative to provide leaders in Wake County with tools and resources.

1) From AWARENESS to ACTION: Building a Resilient Wake County!
Using a TRAUMA-INFORMED Approach

  • 7:30 am Check-in/Networking
  • 8:00-9:30 Keynote and Discussion
  • Complimentary registration

Join Wake County businesses, elected leaders and local governments, nonprofits, educators, public safety, health care and social services providers, and advocates in MOVING from AWARENESS to ACTION in preventing ACEs and building resilience through a trauma-informed approach.

  • Learn how organizations of ALL kinds can become trauma-informed to build resilience--leave with tools you can use right now.
  • Because ACEs and trauma for children and adults is so common and widespread among all demographics, the entire Wake County community is impacted.
  • ACEs have a significant impact on health, quality of life, economics and education, but as a community, we can build resilience. Childhood trauma often translates into adults with:
    - higher health care costs
    - low productivity
    - high turnover at work
    - sinking morale
    - high risk for alcohol and drug abuse
  • We all have a role in building resilience to benefit our bottom line and foster a thriving, healthy community.
  • Learn how Johnson City, TN, became an internationally recognized model and hear how different types of organizations are building resilience through a trauma-informed approach.
  • Hear how Haven House Services in Raleigh is building community resilience with a trauma-informed approach and how this is relevant to every person in Wake County, regardless of where they work.

Keynote: Hear from Becky Haas, Trauma-informed Administrator for Ballad Health (and formerly Community Crime Prevention Program Coordinator for the Johnson City Police Department), Northeast Tennessee ACEs Connection. The Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) National Center for Trauma Informed Care has distinguished Johnson City as a leader in creating a cross-sector model for creating a community of care.

This recognition follows a partnership formed in 2015 with the East Tennessee State University Psychology Department; they created a community wide trauma-informed approach and have since provided training on trauma-informed care and ACEs to over 3,400 cross-sector professionals.

Special Guest Speaker: Michelle Zechmann, CEO, Haven House Services, Raleigh

Haven House Services is a trauma-informed organization; Ms. Zechmann will talk about why this approach is important for all organizations and companies, what they learned about their strengths and opportunities for improvement after completing a trauma-informed organizational assessment, and the impact on their organization.

For those who want training, register for this 4-hour bonus training session.

2) TRAINING: Building Resilience & The Trauma-informed Approach: Key Principles and Assumptions

  • 10:00 am-2:30 pm
  • $40 registration/person, lunch included
  • scholarships are available for those in need; contact AHA at info@advocatesforhealthinaction.org

Start your journey to building greater organizational resilience. Learn key principals of trauma-informed care based on the extensive work of researchers, practitioners, policymakers and people with lived experience in the field.

  • This training can be implemented in any type of organization (business, health care settings, schools, law enforcement, courts, nonprofits, parks and recreation, youth-serving organizations, etc.) to help build resilience for employees and community members alike.
  • A key element of building resilience is to avoid re-traumatizing individuals, whether at work, at school, where people are seeking medical care or human services support, or where interacting with public safety officials.
  • Participants will understand:
    1) the key principles of trauma, its impact on the brain,
    2) using ACEs and the prevalence of trauma
    3) the 4 "Rs" of trauma-informed organizations
    4) SAMHSA's key principles for a trauma approach,
    5) where your organization can go from here, and
    6) the offer of hope and healing.
