Trauma Informed Edmonton
Trauma Informed Edmonton (TIE) is a committee that focuses on producing effective training and resources for frontline workers working with high risk populations, as well as facilitating access to trauma informed resources and professionals.
TIE aims to benefit the Capital Region's Indigenous, refugee, immigrant and high risk youth populations, as well as military members and first responders suffering from PTSD, victims of domestic violence, and others who have experienced trauma.
TIE seeks to educate the public on being "trauma informed" in their professional and personal lives: Ask people not what's wrong with them, but rather about what happened to them.
The TIE committee currently includes representatives from Ambrose Place, Boyle McCauley Health Centre, City of Edmonton, E4C, Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers, Edmonton Police Service, Homeward Trust, REACH Edmonton, and community volunteers.
