Healing Trauma, Healthy Communities Conference

September 26 - September 28

The broad phenomenon of childhood trauma and its impact on children, families and entire communities has only recently been fully understood. Research shows a strong link between childhood adversity and community crises, such as poverty, poor educational outcomes, chronic illness, behavioral health problems and more.

Through the collaboration of leaders in human services, behavioral medicine, neuroscience, academia, and community organizing, Wisconsin is on the forefront of the trauma informed care movement.

Join us in Milwaukee, Sept. 26-28, 2018 for
Healing Trauma, Healthy Communities.

Hosted by Scaling Wellness in Milwaukee (SWiM), a multi-disciplinary group
dedicated to inspiring collaboration to help Milwaukee heal.

If you are a helper, healer or other professional connected to ACEs work in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and throughout the Midwest, we hope you will attend.
