Press Release, Genesee & Orleans County Health Departments

BATAVIA – The Genesee and Orleans County Health Departments (GO Health) recently received a grant from the National Association of County and City Health Officials to learn more about the intersection of trauma, suicide, overdose and health.

There will be a conference to help understand how these issues influence our communities and help us work toward becoming a Trauma-informed Care GOW Region.

To that end, GO Health is coordinating a Trauma & Resiliency Conference on Nov. 9 at Batavia Downs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. This conference will be looking at what Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are, ACEs data from Genesee, Orleans and Wyoming counties, and what it means to be a trauma-informed care community.

If you are in education, behavioral health, mental health, department of social services, law enforcement, the court system, probation, human services, etc. please take the time to register now. Seating may be limited.
