The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has integrated trauma-informed approaches into a growing number of federal initiatives and programs; similar changes are happening at the state and community levels.

This research summary explores trauma-informed initiatives at the systems level and summarizes common program activities, targeted outcomes, and evidence of progress toward those outcomes.
