HHS Resource Guide to Trauma-Informed Human Services

The Administration for Children and Families, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administrations, the Administration for Community Living, the Offices of the Assistant Secretary for Health and the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation at U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have worked together to develop a Guide to Trauma-Informed Human Services. This resource guide is intended to provide an introduction to the topic of trauma, a discussion of why understanding and addressing trauma is important for human services programs, and a “road map” to find relevant resources.
