Sonoma Community Resilience Collaborative

The traumatic events of the North Bay wildfires have profoundly affected our individual emotional and physical health, our social functioning, our overall well-being, and the health and security of our community. Unresolved, this distress can damage our health and limit our potential for rebuilding a strong community.

The Sonoma Community Resilience Collaborative, being spearheaded by Santa Rosa Community Health, is working in partnership across our community and with The Center for Mind-Body Medicine, whose curriculum is the foundation for the program. The vision for the Collaborative is to develop our local capacity for healing, empower lay people with comprehensive tools, build the social connections that are the predictor of community resilience, and prevent the progression of stress and trauma into more serious social, mental, physical, and social impacts a potential for rebuilding a strong community.

Join diverse Sonoma County community members in this dynamic initiative where you will experience evidence-based self-care tools for effectively addressing personal and professional stress after the fires, network with peers, and learn an evidence-based model to self-healing and coping skills. 106 people completed the first cohort in January and are eagerly preparing to implement the training in their workplaces and communities.
