We appreciate all that Bronson does for this community. This is an incredible opportunity to work with one of the largest and most influential organizations in the region that affects thousands of lives, both employees and the people that Bronson serves, by raising awareness about what adverse childhood experiences are, how to support people that have experienced childhood adversity and how to build resilience among staff and patients.

I was incredibly encouraged by how both receptive and committed the employees who attended the screening of RESILIENCE: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope were to becoming a trauma-informed organization and regional community. They seemed interested in not just viewing the film and becoming aware of the issue, but also changing the way that they interacted with others and potentially even changing organization practices to support the vision of becoming a truly trauma responsive and resilient community.
