Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Collaboration

SAMHSA training at Hilbert College in Fall 2014.

SAMHSA serves as a collaborative resource for the Institute on Trauma and Trauma-Informed Care.

ITTIC was one of seven locations to receive a "Train the Trainer" grant on Trauma-Informed Care and the Criminal Justice System. In addition to funding, SAMHSA provides materials and support for ITTIC, which are used to train organizations in the community. SAMHSA offers an array of free material to assist individuals and organizations as they engage in trauma-informed care.

As a result of this collaboration, ITTIC organizes two offerings of the SAMHSA training "How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses" each year.
