March 28 Recovery Month Twitter Chat on Trauma Transcript

On Thursday, March 28, SAMHSA/CSAT hosted an hour-long #RecoveryChat on Twitter with Paulo del Vecchio, director of the Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) as the host. The theme of the chat was “Trauma: Treatment and Recovery through the Delivery of Behavioral Health Services,” and the conversation focused on how to best support individuals who have experienced trauma through treatment and recovery.

@RecoveryMonth posed a series of six questions that guided the chat:

  • What is trauma and what are some causes of trauma?
  • Are there certain populations that are more drastically exposed to and/or affected by trauma?
  • Why is it important for our country to address trauma as a public health issue?
  • What is trauma-informed care (TIC), and how does it differ from traditional recovery services?
  • What are some organizations/resources focused on trauma-informed care for people on the path to recovery?
  • If you or a loved one has dealt w/ trauma, what types of resources and support systems have helped you cope along the way?

There were 34 participants, including @Recovery Month, who contributed to the conversation by posting original comments, questions, or retweets from others. The participants included recovery organizations, treatment facilities, counselors, and individuals in recovery across the United States. In addition, 38 other Twitter users helped promote the chat through original tweets and retweets.
