Trauma Informed Community of Care

Psychological trauma is a pivotal force that shapes people’s mental, emotional, spiritual and physical well-being. Because trauma stems from many events (e.g., violence, abuse, neglect, disaster, war, etc.) nearly every family is impacted in some way. Trauma-informed care provides a new perspective; one in which those providing support shift from asking “what’s wrong with you?” to “what’s happened to you?” This shift reduces the blame and shame that some people experience when being labeled with symptoms and diagnoses. It also builds an understanding of how the past impacts the present, which effectively makes the connections that progress toward healing and recovery.

In February 2014 Elizabeth Hudson was appointed by Governor Walker to lead the Office of Children’s Mental Health which was created to coordinate and integrate state agencies’ activities focused on children’s mental health.  Prior to this appointment, Elizabeth was employed by the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s School of Medicine and Public Health where she partnered with the Wisconsin’s Department of Health Services (DHS) to integrate trauma-informed care into state agencies and into a wide range of human service settings.  During her tenure as Trauma-Informed Care Consultant, Elizabeth accepted the Wisconsin’s Association of Family and Children’s Agency’s John R. Grace Outstanding Leadership Award on behalf of DHS for the work done to promote trauma-informed care and reduce the of seclusion and restraint.  In 2011 she received the “Kindling the Spirit of Recovery” award from United We Stand, the statewide mental health consumer advocacy group.  As Director of the Office of Children’s Mental Health, Elizabeth continues to promote trauma-informed care and is a key member of Fostering Futures, a public/private partnership led by Wisconsin’s First Lady Tonette Walker which works to integrate trauma-informed care into communities across Wisconsin.
