We are in the 6th month of our participation in the Scott County Mental Health Court initiative.
By providing case management, counseling and therapy services, psychiatric services, employment, and group services, we are already making a significant difference in the lives of men and women in the court system who are struggling with mental illnesses.
Transitions providing trauma-Informed Care training
Transitions MHS has been an active partner with the Eastern Iowa-Western IL Trauma Informed Consortium since its inception, November 2013, in its efforts to help make the Quad Cities a 'trauma informed community'. We are a strong believer in the research that is transforming communities across the nation in understanding 'toxic stress' and the emerging data on how exposure to poverty, domestic and community violence and early life stressors affects the developing brains and bodies of children and adults. Since 2014, TMHS has been an integral player in bringing TIC training to community organizations and school districts. Since November of 2015, Transitions has worked closely with Rock Island School District on their innovative planning to make their school programs and staff more 'trauma informed'.
