National Council for Behavioral Health Conference #NatCon19

Last month, I had the pleasure of attending the annual National Council for Behavioral Health Conference. I have been to my fair share of conferences but #NatCon19 was one of the best.

As any seasoned conference goer, I had a strategy when it came to which sessions and events I wanted to attend. My game...

Planting Seeds

Tifanie Petro ·
There is this passion that ignites when you develop a new skill or take on a new project. The energy is almost palpable when you leave the training. You are on fire and you are ready to spread your message to the farthest corner of the state. Then one week, two weeks, maybe even months pass by and it can feel a little daunting. You might find yourself wondering, "what was I thinking?" "How am I going to reach every person in my circle...let alone my state?" "Who am I to take this on, who's...

What If I Told You?

What if I told you that I was a victim of child sex abuse? As a survivor of child sexual abuse , I have a clear understanding of the importance of addressing stigma and shame as it pertains to sexual abuse, sexual assault and rape. Victims, especially young children, often do not disclose sexual abuse. Those who are witnesses of child sexual abuse, or who are trusted by survivors enough that they confide in them, are often ill-equipped to handle the responsibility. And, many times, parents...

"Faces of ACEs: The Lifelong Impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences" Conference 2019

Laura Pinhey ·
Friday, April 12, 2019 marked an exciting, auspicious, and perhaps pivotal day in the history of Monroe County, Indiana. That’s a lot of adjectives—and pressure—to pile onto just another glorious spring day in Bloomington. But I think many folks who virtually congregate on a site that supports communities implementing trauma-informed and resilience-building practices grounded in ACEs science would agree that a county’s first-ever ACEs conference deserves a little ballyhoo. But this ACEs...
