“Trauma Informed Care” as featured on Betty’s Battleground!

I’m REALLY excited to share a guest post I did for my blogger friend and fellow PTSD Mama Betty. Her blog is amazing and I’m so happy I was able to contribute! Here’s my guest post on Trauma Informed Care. In it, I speak at length about my professional experience and training in trauma informed approaches and contrast my professional experience with the decidedly-NOT-trauma-informed nature of my experience with receiving crisis stabilization.

When treatment is NOT trauma informed, and you’re dealing with trauma, it kind of makes you feel like this. 

I’m really proud of this piece, as I feel it’s important to the overall conversation on the state of mental health care in this country and around the world. I hope you’ll read and consider sharing it!
