Partner for Mental Health is a trauma informed organization. All of the services we provide are trauma informed and we work to advance state level policy to create a mental health service system across Virginia that successfully addresses trauma and prevents retraumatization in the help seeking process.
Trauma informed care and systems understand that behaviors that are currently getting in your way and preventing you from reaching your goals may have previously served to protect you from, or help you survive, traumatic events. Services and systems that are trauma informed understand the complex nature and effects of trauma and promote resilience and healing. Trauma informed care and support help create safe physical environments for healing. They provide clear and consistent information to help establish a relationship with you that based in trust. Respecting that you are the expert on your own life, trauma informed services will offer you choice and options. Trauma informed care celebrates your strengths and helps you utilize them to build the life you want and deserve.
As a trauma informed organization, Partner for Mental Health promises to honor your autonomy and to always respond to you with transparency, consistency, and empathy. We will help you meet your goals at your pace. We have great respect for the obstacles you have already overcome and great faith in your ability to overcome even more.
