Our Trauma-Informed Journey
In 2014, Great Circle was selected by the National Council for Behavioral Health as one of 27 behavioral health organizations across the U.S. and the only Missouri organization to participate in the National Council’s 2014 Trauma-Informed Behavioral Healthcare Learning Community.
As part of the community, Great Circle is incorporating screening for trauma and implementing research-based approaches in treatment programs.
Great Circle has launched a training program for its entire workforce to obtain site-certification by the nationally recognized Child Trauma Academy. The goal is to implement evidence-based interventions in treating individuals who have experienced trauma. Implementing these approaches will improve outcomes for survivors of trauma.Learn more about our trauma-informed journey.
