Healthy Communities Meets Thurs. Nov. 12

Healthy Communities of Lyon and Storey Counties meets Thursday November 12 from 9am-11am via Zoom (connection details below). Attendees and Healthy Communities’ staff will share brief updates on various events, initiatives and programs.

Afterward, Jennifer McClendon, Lauren Wilson and Sarah Jane Smith of the Trauma-Responsive Demonstration Grant Team will lead a focus group.

The purpose of the focus group is to gather input on the Trauma Recovery Demonstration Grant – a federal grant to the State of Nevada to help fund mental health services for school-aged children who have experienced trauma.

As part of the grant, they are also exploring school, community, and mental health provider knowledge and beliefs about trauma and its impacts on children and families.

They will be conducting focus groups all around the state. During the Healthy Communities’ meeting on November 12, they’ll ask questions about trauma and poverty in your own community, and the resources you have to address these concerns.

LINK TO SURVEY: To save time in the meeting, you can complete two very short surveys ahead of the meeting. The first one collects your professional contact information (name, agency, role), and the second one will ask a few brief questions about trauma resources in your community. This should take no more than five minutes to complete.

The purpose of collecting this contact information is to track who is participating in these focus groups, and also to allow follow up with additional questions as needed. Click here to provide your contact information, and click here to answer our brief survey about trauma resources in your community By doing this ahead of time, the results of the trauma resources survey can be shared during the meeting more efficiently, and the team can spend more time on discussion. Thank you for your input.
