Resilience Catalysts in Public Health
Using the novel Community Resilience (CR) framework developed at GW, health departments across the country are convening multiple sectors at the local, state, and federal level to manage and deliver resources that contribute to a community’s health and wellbeing.
Operating as Chief Health Strategists, local health departments are Resilience Catalysts, driving initiatives that address the Pair of ACEs. Resilience Catalysts foster integration of cross-sector and community services and community-wide prevention by leveraging a public health approach to prevent the Pair of ACEs with a focus on adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), opioid misuse, and suicide.
The Resilience Catalysts were launched on November 8th. Read the launch article here.
