To be trauma-informed, in any context, is to understand the ways in which violence, victimization, and other traumatic experiences may have impacted the lives of the individuals involved and to apply that understanding to the design of systems and provision of services so they accommodate trauma survivors’ needs and are consonant with healing and recovery (Butler, Critelli, & Rinfrette, 2011; Butler, L. D., Critelli, F. M., & Rinfrette, E. S., 2011).

Symptomatology    Mental Health Disorders   

Depression, Anxiety, And Mood Disorders

If you are experiencing sadness, hopelessness, irritability, nervousness, feelings of uneasiness, and/or trouble relaxing and obtaining restful sleep, you may be experiencing the symptomatology of depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues. However, these mental health issues do not and can not define you!



Relational, Familial, Societal, And Parenting Stressors 
Childhood And Adult Trauma/
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

From childhood to adult trauma, negative life experiences impact an individual neurologically, emotionally, and even physically.Trauma has often been defined as a life altering experience that can impact an individuals entire life structure and worldview. Trauma can be defined as but is not limited to emotional, physical, sexual abuse/coercion, war experiences, and bullying. However, the negative impact of trauma can lead to the symptomatology of PTSD.

Co-Occurring Disorders And Substance Abuse

Stress can significantly impact an individuals emotional, physical, and psychological state. Everything from financial, familial, LGBTQ, relational, societal and parenting stressors can gravely impact an individuals life structure. However, there are specialized counseling approaches that can help a spouse, mother, father, couple, and/or family member identify, address, process and then overcome such stressors in order to improve the mental state and well-being of that individual's life.

Often times individuals who may struggle with substance abuse/misuse have compounding mental health symptoms that cause and can increase the substance abuse and/or misuse, and this is what mental health providers consider a co-occurring mental health issue. When an individual is struggling with co-occurring mental health issues, there are a variety of counseling approaches and modalities that can be employed to treat the substance abuse and the additional mental health concern(s).
