Learning new information and skills is crucial to creating a community in which children, youth and families thrive. To advance our mission and support system of care values, we offer events and trainings. Many are done in partnership with other community organizations. Our training catalog lists dozens of free trainings available to those in Elkhart County who seek to support children’s mental health.


Understanding Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)

In the 1990s, the CDC and Kaiser Permanente conducted a landmark study on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). They discovered that ACEs and psychological trauma are the greatest indicators of later health, safety and opportunity outcomes over the lifespan. During this ACE Interface 2-hour presentation, you’ll learn 1) more about the ACE Study, 2) the impact of stress on the brain and nervous system and how that affects a person over the course of their life AND 3) ways to encourage and promote resilience in youth and adults so together we can create a healthier community. 

This FREE presentation is appropriate for both mental health professionals and community members. It is provided in partnership with SJC Cares, Oaklawn and Beacon Community Impact.

Self-Care for Every Season

Do you feel like the seasons are flying by and leaving you breathless? Do you keep hoping to have some time to refill your energy so you can enjoy the beauty each season offers?

During this first community training offered by Together We ROCK, we focused on our top priority – YOU!  There is no one else in the world who can do the work you do in exactly the same wonderful way that you alone can do it.  We recognize this and value each unique individual that has committed their life to building safety and connection for the youngest and most vulnerable in our community.

We hope you will join us to learn about six domains of self-care that we believe will bring more joy and peace to every season.  You will leave this training with a personalized self-care plan you choose to commit to using in all seasons – daily, occasionally, and in those crisis times.
