Life is a mixture of struggle and strength, often showing up when least expected. Trauma-Informed Utah (TIU) helps organizations proactively prepare to recognize the impacts of adversity and build communal resilience for themselves and all they serve.
On August 13, 2019, the Intergenerational Welfare Reform Commission approved the concept of developing a center to support Utah in becoming a trauma-informed state. At this time, the Trauma-Informed Utah Initiative, in partnership with stakeholders from many different sectors, is pleased to present the following proposal for establishing the Trauma-Informed Utah (TIU) Center.
This proposal was shaped and vetted by over 80 community stakeholders. These stakeholders represent a variety of entities, including, but not limited to state agencies, businesses enterprises, non-profit organizations, educational institutions, healthcare entities, faith-based organizations and individuals who have experience interacting with non-trauma-informed systems and organizations. These stakeholders serve a diverse array of communities and populations across urban, suburban and rural Utah.
