An Introduction to Trauma Informed Care in the Recovery Village, Killadreenan, Co. Wicklow



3 X 2 hour sessions.

Trauma Informed Care is a way that mental health services should be provided according to Ireland’s mental health policy: Sharing the Vision.

Co-delivered by a mental health professional and ARCHES staff, this course explains what Trauma Informed Care is, why it is important, how it is provided, and its values.​

It looks at the shift in focus from “What is wrong with you?” to “What happened to you?”  and “What is strong with you?”.

For service users and supporters, this course can help them advocate for this type of service in the mental health system. For mental health professionals, this courses can help them better provide Trauma Informed Care.
