It’s sometimes difficult to encourage people to talk about personal trauma. The National Council for Behavioral Health and Kaiser Permanente’s Trauma-informed Primary Care Initiative developed a poster to help spark conversations about trauma and/or toxic stress.
The tree is a graphic representation of “hope beyond hurt” and a reminder that “healing is possible.” Consider displaying it in your waiting rooms, exam rooms and other locations where individuals have time to view it and consider its message. Our goal for the poster is that it will break down walls of silence with its life-affirming message and, ultimately, help you enhance the care you provide.
You can download the poster and share it in any format you like—on social media, on your website, as a flyer, via email, etc.
