Subject: S14: Audio: Treatment Services for Trauma
Type of resource: Conference Presentations and Papers
Abstract: This session will go beyond trauma informed care to look at what services and programs are needed to treat people who have experienced trauma and have so far not responded to usual treatment programs. What can government do to put effective services in place where and when they are needed? In Paper 1, Helen Milroy will talk on what we have learnt about trauma and the effects on our mental health, and what is required to prevent and treat people who have suffered early life trauma. Helen is a psychiatrist and she sat on the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
