Developing a Trauma Informed System of Care using System of Care Values

In this presentation we will discuss why the development of a trauma-informed system of care is important to a community, and how to develop it around the system of care values of being family driven, youth-guided, community-based and culturally and linguistically competent. A discussion of the development of the Whole Child Leon-PACT Partnership will provide a real life experience of developing a strengths-based system of service provision and family empowerment, that by its very nature is a trauma-informed system of care.

Mental Illness: It Can Happen to Anyone

The speaker presents her personal journey through childhood trauma, psychiatric hospitalizations, and incarceration, to their current stable and productive life. While many mental illnesses show symptoms early in one’s life, this story demonstrates what can happen when symptoms and crises happen to someone in their 40’s. Most importantly, it highlights the power of hope, recovery, and resiliency.

Saturday Keynote - No Greatness without Goodness

As Senior Vice President, Randy Lewis presided over Walgreens’ logistics network for 16 years as the chain grew from 1,500 stores to over 8,000. He was also instrumental in introducing a new concept to Walgreens that would transform its distribution centers and employment opportunities. Walgreens’ two most recent distribution centers employ an inclusive and integrated workforce composed 40% of persons with disabilities (PWDs) who are held to the same work standards and earn the same pay as “typically-abled” fellow workers. It has moved to all centers across the country, which now employ over 1,000 PWD’s, and is being introduced into its stores in communities throughout America.

Mr. Lewis tells the story of how this all came together and the lessons learned—how the most optimistic expectations can be exceeded when people act together for a common good. This is a story of how compassion can move mountains, that greatness is within us all and more importantly, to remind us that we all
underestimate our power to impact our world.
