“It is almost impossible to put into words the feeling you will have during and after the conference – it was indeed life changing,”

M. Jenkins

"Speaking to a room full of powerful women last year about building Trauma Informed Communities, I shared various statistics and explained that women experience trauma differently than men. This raised awareness and empowered women to take action for themselves and their families."

P. Wong

"I received key information about the available resources within the Hampton Roads Community to support my extended family and to expand my knowledge of the 'stigma' surrounding mental health."
