Huron County TIC Community Partners
"Trauma may be a fact of life, it does not however have to be a life sentence."
~Peter A. Levine
What is the Huron County TIC Committee?
Huron County TIC Committee was established in 2020 as a community collaborative to address and reduce the effects of trauma. The TIC Committee is a collaborative partnership between local organizations who are committed to implementing trauma informed care principles and serving the community through a trauma informed perspective.
We understand it is important to recognize that trauma is often an underlying factor that impacts many of the mental health and substance use challenges we see in our community. Combating behavioral health challenges can be difficult due to various barriers related to them, however through additional initiatives such as Trauma Informed Care (TIC), we hope to reduce the prevalence of trauma and increase protective factors for resiliency through awareness, education, and action.
