Molly Richard, research coordinator, is presenting at the Coming Together For Action 2018 conference in Aurora, Colorado on October 5, 2018.

She is discussing two papers:

1. “Measuring Organizational Trauma-Informed Care Using the TICOMETER” from 3:00-4:15 pm. The TICOMETER is the first trauma-informed care organizational assessment instrument with strong psychometric properties. Learn more about the TICOMETER.

2. “Race, Homelessness, and Behavioral Health” from 4:30-5:30 pm. She is sharing data that suggests homeless service systems are not adequately responsive to traumatic stress, minority stress, and behavioral health needs of people of color. Read more about our work on racial equity and homelessness.

The event is organized by the Global Alliance for Behavioral Health and Social Justice in partnership with the Colorado School of Public Health.
