The ACES blog just posted our latest news on the 8 regional coalitions.
Shortly after Resilient Georgia was founded in April 2019, our Board of Directors convened a Strategic Planning session which allowed us to identify our No. 1 priority–to learn from our peers. The stakeholders and partners at the table identified that, to be truly successful, Resilient Georgia needed to first look at what other states were doing–and how they were doing it. After many calls, internet searches and conversations, we completed the National Landscape Scan of Trauma Informed Care and Adverse Childhood Experience Prevention efforts. While we found that many states are doing phenomenal work, we identified that there was not a perfect public-private partnership model that was a direct fit for us to emulate. With the help of our partners, we then started to explore what Georgia’s landscape looks like - an ongoing effort that continues to inform the development of new, integrated and innovative efforts for Georgia’s children and families in the behavioral health space (blog post sharing the results of our ACEs/TIC Statewide Landscape Scan coming soon)
