Trauma-Informed Practices for Physical, Psychological and Emotional Safety

Trauma is a common reality for many of us. As defined by the Service Abuse and Mental Health Administration, “Individual trauma results from an event, series of events, or set of circumstances experienced by an individual as physically or emotionally harmful or life-threatening with lasting adverse effects on the individual’s functioning and mental, physical, social, emotional, or spiritual well-being.”

Given this, trauma impacts the body, mind and spirit, so much so that, left unaddressed, it can impact and even undermine countless aspects of our life. At One Community Health, we take special care to view patient cases through this lens of possibility. Whether you've experienced trauma in past or are in the midst of it right now, we are here to help. Through trauma-informed practices, we collaborate with you to advance your health and wellness with respect, hope and healing. Our teams of providers work together to develop customized solutions that make sense and that you can "own" for yourself.

With trauma-informed practices, our goal is for you to feel safe confiding in us and sharing whatever information is vital to physical, psychological and emotional well-being. Our entire organization is professionally trained to understand, recognize and respond to patient trauma in ways that avoid retraumatization. With us, you'll find we're here to support who you are—and where you are now—so to inspire and empower effective, sustainable healing. As vulnerable as you may feel at times, you are not alone with One Community Health. While always putting you and your safety first, we want to be your partner in this creative, restorative journey and feel great gratitude about supporting you in this unique way.
