This resource provided by the Trauma-Informed Community Network, a part of the Partnership for a Healthier Fairfax, shares a trauma-informed approach to changing systems in a variety of service settings in order to address trauma and its consequences.

SAMHSA also provides six key principles of a trauma-informed approach, which are incorporated into this document alongside additional information on how organizations can assess their policies and practices to align with this approach.
