Trauma Awareness Month

May is Trauma Awareness Month

In October 2018, Governor Carney signed Executive Order 24, prioritizing efforts for Delaware to become a trauma-informed state and incorporating Trauma Awareness Month as a key initiative. The Family Services Cabinet Council and Trauma Matters Delaware (TMD) are hosting Delaware’s sixth annual Trauma Awareness Month in May 2024.  

Delaware will host several virtual events and learning opportunities during Trauma Awareness Month. We will also celebrate the exceptional work done to date, share best practices and resources for trauma-informed care, and learn how trauma-informed practices can enhance your organization’s services.
