“Resilience” is a trait upon which we’ve all had to lean this year. If you’re lucky, “trauma” won’t be as familiar, but for many, techniques for mitigating the effects of trauma have been saving graces.
If you’re tempted to say “amen” to any of that, you don’t want to miss ACEs, Trauma & Resilience: An Audience Chat. The virtual event will be held Thursday, November 12th from 6pm-7:30pm, and is made possible due to support from Sacramento County and Sutter Health.
The audience chat will feature several Sacramento area mental health clinicians and thought leaders, a phenomenal spoken word artist, and a young man you need to meet, Justin Martinez.
“I am honored to share my inspiring story on how and why I achieved against adversity,” Martinez said via email, as he prepares for Thursday’s event. “I want to show others that my vulnerability has become a superpower in my life.”
“The event is for anyone who has survived trauma and has chosen to forgive their pasts.”
Read MPC’s full feature, hear more from Martinez and register for the November 13 audience chat.
