Trauma-Sensitive Workplace (TSW) / Support Services

Crisis Event Support

Following a crisis event, the TSW team responds to the district to offer support and resources. A crisis event is defined by any event that causes strong emotional reactions that interfere with the ability to function with ones daily life. This includes critical incidents, workplace injury/death, death/severe injury of a client, death of another employee, workplace violence/threats, natural disasters. If you or someone you know is in need of our services, please have your leadership staff email us at

Peer Support

Our dedicated team proudly oversees Peer Support Groups tailored to DHHR workers across all districts. These groups are driven by you and provide a valuable platform for staff to engage in meaningful conversations about their experiences, confront challenges together, and celebrate their achievements alongside like-minded peers. This initiative presents a unique opportunity for you to share your invaluable perspective and unique strengths, ultimately contributing to the growth and support of others within the organization. By participating in these Peer Support Groups, you actively contribute to the formation of a strong and uplifting support network, a powerful defense against the potential toll of Secondary Traumatic Stress and Vicarious Trauma. We encourage you to reach out to to discover a group located near you!
