Trauma at the Root: Exploring Paths to Healing with Formerly Incarcerated Men

 

Project Funding: The Vancouver Foundation
Project Period: 2018 – 2020

 

The CCPHE and John Howard Society of Canada (JHS) are partnering on this 3-year participatory project to engage men with a history of incarceration and multi-sectoral stake holders to: 1) Improve our understanding of how men perceive the effects of trauma and its relationship to substance use and related health-seeking behavior and 2) Develop a trauma education toolkit to support the integration of trauma and resiliency-informed care into correctional and community-based organizations working with men who have experienced incarceration.
