TRUST

TRUST

Formerly known as the TIC-OSAT, the Trauma Responsive Understanding Self-Assessment Tool (TRUST) is a strength-based organizational self-assessment tool that provides organizations of all types and sizes with a point in time “snapshot” of where they are in their journey towards becoming more trauma- informed.  The tool employs the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) 10 Implementation Domains as a framework for guiding survey participants through a sequence of questions to assess implementation of trauma-informed practices.  The TRUST allows organizations to view aggregated survey results from their leadership and staff.  These results are displayed within a concise, real-time report that offers recommendations for bolstering trauma-informed practices.  This assessment can be used for initial benchmarking, as well as repeated at selected intervals to gauge progress and identify next steps.

Time to Talk About Mental Health
5/2/2022 12:00:05 AM

For far too long mental health has been a subject that we don’t talk enough about.  Stigma has been a powerful force in shaping the way society views and thinks about mental health, contributing to negative and inaccurate perceptions that lead to discrimination in all facets of life.  This has been particularly true in the workplace.  Despite the fact that approximately 20% of individuals in the US experience a mental health concern annually, conversations about how to recognize and respond to signs of concern are often avoided.  It is not difficult to connect this to the outcome that more than half of those reporting a mental health concern have not received treatment.
