Abstract: This paper describes the background to recommendations for a national strategic direction that promotes Trauma Informed Care and Practice (TICP) in Australia by championing a cultural shift in policy reform across mental health and human services. Informed by international and Australian evidence, it explains the rationale for embedding TICP Principles into broad-based policy reform and integration across service settings, systems and jurisdictions.
