The importance of understanding the impact of trauma is increasingly recognised amongst services working with people who experience homelessness. This is particularly the case for those who experience long-term homelessness, or those at risk for experiencing long-term homelessness. Star Health is part of the Trauma and Homelessness Initiative (THI).
The ultimate goal of the THI is to investigate the relationship between trauma and long-term homelessness and to develop a trauma and homelessness service framework for Sacred Heart Mission (SHM), Mind Australia, Star Health and VincentCare Victoria. There are several resources to come out of the initiative. These are available below.
