The State of Connecticut announced on November 28, 2012 that CHR has been selected to participate in the Trauma and Gender Practice Improvement Collaborative with the Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services (DMHAS) and the Connecticut Women’s Consortium (CWC).
The Trauma and Gender Practice Improvement Collaborative is a recovery-oriented system of behavioral health care that is trauma-informed and gender-responsive for adults in Connecticut. Each year DMHAS-operated and funded agencies are selected through an application process to participate in a practice improvement collaborative, including free training and consultation from national experts in the field of trauma and gender-responsive services. This initiative originally started as focusing on trauma-informed care only and in the past three years it has included a focus on gender-responsive care as well.
CHR was picked to join the program from a pool of competitive applicants according to Julienne Giard, the Manager of Evidence-Based & Best Practices for DMHAS.
The two day kick-off event for the program will take place on January 17 and 18, 2013.
