Promoting Resiliency of Trauma Exposed Communities Together (PROTECT) is the Illinois initiative to mitigate toxic stress and trauma in early childhood. PROTECT will expand access to trauma-informed resources systemically and statewide, coordinate efforts among systems, and engage and work with families and communities exposed to trauma to build resilience.
PROTECT has been working in your neighborhood to learn more about how Illinois can respond to communities exposed to trauma and toxic stress. The Illinois Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics (ICAAP) invites you to hear what we have learned to date, what we are recommending based on what we have learned, and how, if you are interested, you can become more involved in PROTECT.
This call will include an update of PROTECT activities as well as time for Q&A.
