TRAUMA, SUICIDE & ADDICTION IN THE BERKSHIRES: WHAT WE CAN DO
Trauma, Suicide & Addiction in the Berkshires: What We Can Do
The Berkshires, the Commonwealth and the nation are in the middle of an epidemic of suicide, opioid and alcohol poisoning, and chronic liver disease. Adverse childhood experiences that predispose to these events have been identified and are associated with increased risk of suicide attempts and chronic medical conditions.
Understanding the role of trauma in the generating of suffering leads to greater compassion and trauma-informed approaches to prevention, care, healing, and growth. A robust literature around resilience and mentorship suggest proven strategies that can help both individuals and communities organize to meet challenges of this nature.
