MHMRCV plays a vital role in the Concho Valley as we provide community-based services to persons with mental illness, intellectual & developmental disabilities (IDD), and autism in Coke, Concho, Crockett, Irion, Reagan, Sterling, and Tom Green Counties. As the Local Mental Health & Local Intellectual & Developmental Disability Authority, we are there to assist people with getting the right service or support at the right time with the right intensity.
MHMR Services for the Concho Valley strives to be a Trauma Informed organization. We understand that traumatic experiences can impact all people, whether directly or indirectly and we are working to develop an organizational culture based on beliefs about resilience, recovery, and healing from trauma. As a best practice, MHMRCV recognizes and is committed to the six key principles of a Trauma-Informed Approach that are generalized across all settings of our organization.
2. Trustworthiness and Transparency
3. Peer Support
4. Collaboration and Mutuality
5. Empowerment, Voice, and Choice
6. Cultural, Historical, and Gender Issues
As an organization, MHMRCV is learning how to realize the widespread impact of trauma and understand potential paths for recovery; how to recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma in persons served, families, staff, and others involved with the systems; how to respond by fully integrating knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, and practices; and seeks to actively resist re-traumatization.
