Resilient Wisconsin

We can build a healthier and more resilient Wisconsin
Logo for Resilient Wisconsin: Connected. Stronger. Thriving.Building resilience within ourselves, our relationships, and in our community matters. In fact, when we find healthy ways to cope with toxic stress and trauma, we take a step closer to a healthier future for us all. That’s because they’re both a risk factor for—and a painful consequence of—some of Wisconsin’s most complex public health challenges, from mental health disorders and harmful substance use to child abuse and suicide. They’re all connected. And that’s what makes Resilient Wisconsin’s integrated approach to addressing the root causes of trauma and its related harms so important.

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.
