MISSION: To create a healthy, just, resilient, and trauma-informed society where all individuals, families, and communities have the social, political, cultural, economic, and spiritual opportunities and support necessary to thrive.
Our work is grounded in NEAR science, which is a body of scientific research that includes Neuroscience, Epigenetics, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), and Resilience. NEAR illustrates how adversity, stress, and trauma impact individuals and society, as well as protective factors that promote better outcomes.
CTIPP focuses on the root causes of our nation's most pressing challenges through open and collaborative engagement across sectors and systems.
We embrace an anti-racist, public health framework by addressing the injustices that cause poor health and supporting the integration of promotion, prevention, resilience-building, and healing activities. We recognize the importance of historical and intergenerational inequities that impact health across the lifespan as well as the health and welfare of families.
We know that people are fundamentally resilient and we prioritize actions and policies that support and build on natural strengths and disrupt practices and policies that perpetuate harm. We believe that trauma-informed approaches address social and economic justice as well as healing.
We are also committed to ensuring voice and choice for everyone, especially those that have been marginalized, discriminated against, and excluded from opportunities that promote health and well-being.
