week 28 2018 share graphic

Childhood trauma from violence, abuse, racism, and other adverse childhood experiences, is at the root of many mental health issues. Long-term effects from these experiences may surface later in life and have a permanent impact on overall health and well-being. Join us in acknowledging this important truth and debunking the myth that all mental health challenges are purely biologically caused.
