What exactly is trauma, and what is trauma-informed care? This event breaks it down with a combination of personal anecdote and expert information: what are common personal and environmental risks for trauma, what does trauma do to the brain, how does trauma manifest itself symptomatically? What does “trauma-informed” care look like when it comes to the mental illness and substance use problems so common among trauma survivors? How can we as a culture be better informed about trauma and the treatments that help people recover from it?

Shout out to @alyserurianidesign powerful and brave art: “kindred is a photo + embroidery series based in process. each photo + embroidery represents one day; my face that day, my emotions that day, my life that day, my thoughts that day. I embroidered onto the photo in whatever way felt right. I explored emotions without the context of language- something I am not accustomed to and, frankly, something I fear. the end product calls to look at the layers of the image and the relationship between them. this project holds as a sort of visual journal where I can express myself and my vulnerability without edits.“ #newdaycampaign #newdaycampaignartists #thenewdaycampaign #fightstigma #healingarts #newdaynostigma #newdaycampaignartistoftheweek #ndcartistoftheweek #artistoftheweek.
