Issues of mental health and trauma are increasingly prevalent in society and impact our relationships with service users and colleagues in the shelter system.  A trauma informed lens is essential to providing effective customer support and sustainable service.  Participants will develop an understanding of trauma and its impacts and have opportunities to consider what trauma-informed service looks like in the shelter system.
