"Traumatic events have a powerful impact in workplaces and if left unattended, they can have very severe side effects for a company and its culture. It is important for employers to consider trauma-informed care as a strategy for their stability and long-term viability."

TRAUMA-INFORMED EMPLOYEE RESOURCE GROUPS
Employee Resource Groups are created within companies to build community among people with shared identities or experiences at work. When done thoughtfully, those focused on mental health promote diversity and inclusion and provide support for employees managing symptoms of mental health conditions.
Trauma-informed Employee Resources Groups are designed to provide trauma psycho-education and support to survivors related to dealing with the effects of trauma in the workplace. The intent is to give trauma survivors the opportunity to talk about the effects of trauma that they deal with in the workplace, develop tools and skills to be able to overcome those obstacles, and develop a path forward so they can excel in their chosen career.
