NHS Participates in Trauma Summit 2017
NHS partnered with the Bucks-Mont Collaborative with their "Trauma & Resilience: Creating Organizations & Communities That help Heal" 10th Community Summit on May 18. NHS Executive Director for Bucks and Montgomery Counties Carolyn Lewis, PsyD led a panel discussion on trauma, its many forms, and how it affects those we serve and our own staff. The summit, attended by more than 300 people, focused on learning about trauma and how, together, organizations and communities can be more responsive to the wounds of our individuals served, our coworkers, our neighbors, and our families and ourselves.
The event featured over 20 community agencies that provide Human Services in Susquehanna County and was initiated to make residents of Susquehanna County more aware of the resources available to them. NHS NEPA and Tri-Valley Care were pleased to be invited and to share information about our services with individuals and stakeholders.
