In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month in May, the Center for Population Health at Cheshire Medical Center, a member of Dartmouth Health, will present a free webinar, Trauma and Basic Principles of Trauma-Informed Care, via Zoom on Tuesday, May 17 from 7:00 to 8:00 pm EST. Psychiatrist Christopher Mills, MD, and Susan Maydwell, PA-C, will lead the presentation and answer questions from participants.

The occurrence of trauma is widespread. This presentation aims to raise awareness about trauma and introduce the principles of trauma-informed care and current initiatives in Cheshire County surrounding trauma-informed care. 

This discussion offers individuals in our community the opportunity to assimilate information surrounding trauma and its interconnectedness to issues surrounding mental health and well-being.
