Turnaround testifies at D.C. Council Education Public Roundtable on Trauma-Informed Public Schools
Executive Director for Washington, D.C., Mike Lamb, was invited to testify on behalf of Turnaround for Children at a Council of the District of Columbia’s Committee on Education public roundtable on the Value of Investing in Trauma-Informed Public Schools and Support Service.
The purpose of this roundtable was to learn more about the importance of trauma-informed schools and environments and address the following questions: “How do we identify students affected by trauma? What exactly does it mean to be trauma-informed? What types of existing services and trainings are available to students and school-based staff in this regard? How can the District of Columbia better coordinate and improve mental health services for students?”
