    Kini-Ana Tinkham, MRBN Interim Director, joined Spurwink’s clinical leaders Ben Strick, LCSW, and Rebecca Patkus, LCSW in a presentation at the State House in Augusta to share information about statewide resources about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and building resilience. 

    The Spurwink Community Impact Forum attendees left with a better understanding of trauma, the prevalence of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), and the correlation between ACEs, health risk behaviors, and adolescent and adult health outcomes. Also discussed was how Trauma-informed Care can support people, how data can be used to track the support provided, and how to translate that into legislative action. 

    For more information on this forum topic, read the recap from our first Community Impact Forum here.

    Additional Community Impact Forums are being planned. 
    Please contact Gabrielle Gallucci, Director of Mission Impact, with any questions or suggestions at ggallucci@spurwink.org or (207) 871-1211 ext. 2137.
