On March 24, 2023, the Behavioral Health Alliance of Rural Pennsylvania (BHARP) and Community Care Behavioral Health Organization held a recognition ceremony in Warren, Pennsylvania, to celebrate Beacon Light Behavioral Health Systems’ trauma re-certification. This follows Beacon Light’s participation in the North Central Trauma Informed Care Initiative and exemplary achievement in completing the program.
“The concept that I like most is the staff at Beacon Light Behavioral Health System goes into every situation appreciating and understanding that each member’s needs are unique,” said Guy Signore, President and CEO of Journey Health System. “The staff is able to build rapport quite easily.”
The providers involved in the program work to achieve expertise in trauma informed care, which involves trauma-specific treatment for individuals. They also create a trauma informed care culture within their organization. Additionally, one of their other goals is to successfully promote safety for staff and individuals within the program.
