Trauma Prevention Initiative

The Westmont/West Athens Unity Summit was planned by community stakeholders with support from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH). DPH is partnering with the Department of Health Services (DHS) and other county and community partners to implement a Trauma Prevention Initiative.

The goal of the Initiative, established in December 2015, is to reduce trauma visits and deaths throughout Los Angeles County, beginning with reducing the high rates of violence in South Los Angeles. The Initiative will build a foundation for a comprehensive approach to violence prevention and intervention by coordinating strategies across the lifespan, leveraging resources of existing programs and developing innovative programs, policies, and partnerships.
