Getcha Mind Right



Getcha Mind Right is a trauma awareness program that aims to strengthen the capacity of individuals and community. This program was designed to provide a space where through peer-to-peer support youth and young adults can begin to address 4 components that play a role in trauma awareness:

  • Violence Prevention- conversations about lived experiences and how the outcomes of those experiences have affects at the micro-, mezzo-, and macrolevels.
  • Health and Wellness- Healing from traumatic experiences or events are a process and therefore, require professional support systems, knowledge and access to healthy food options, and structured/intentional positive body movement.
  • Financial Literacy- By educating participants in financial literacy, we’re able to improve financial well-being, break the cycles of intergenerational financial crises and create pathways out of poverty.
  • Community Engagement- having knowledge of resources within one’s community, activating public spaces to engage others and encouraging unity amongst community residents and stakeholders for long-term impact.
