Join the Rock County Trauma Task Force to help us create a trauma-informed community.
The Trauma Task Force Mission

- Increase the capacity of partners to utilize trauma-informed and gender-responsive procedures and practices
- Increase access to evidence-based trauma intervention and treatment
- Reduce the number of ACEs experienced by local children
- Reduce negative consequences following trauma (substance abuse, depression, behavioral problems at school, etc.)
