Resilient Wisconsin brings together the latest evidence-based tools and trauma-informed practices. So that people living with or affected by trauma or toxic stress—and the health services professionals and programs that serve them—can find the support and resources they need.
Coping and practicing resilience during the COVID-19 pandemic
You are making important changes to take care of yourself, your loved ones, and your communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s not easy. Learn how to recognize and manage some of the stress related to the COVID-19 pandemic and strengthen your ability to bounce back from adversity.
Moving prevention upstream
Imagine if we could prevent public health harms before they occur, like fixing a broken bridge before someone gets hurt. That’s the idea behind upstream prevention. We’re working to address the root causes of public health challenges like harmful substance use, chronic disease, and more—by investing in early interventions that improve the conditions in which Wisconsin’s residents live, work, and grow.
Find out how early prevention, combined with helpful interventions at every stage, can help people cope with and recover from the root causes and results of trauma.
