About US 

The Department of Public Health (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, place-based approach to violence prevention and intervention by coordinating strategies across the lifespan, leveraging resources of existing programs and developing innovative programs, policies, and partnerships. 

DPH recognizes that South Los Angeles communities have experienced numerous forms of violence and trauma at the individual, societal, and historical level. DPH is committed to working in partnership with community members. The strategies implemented in the four TPI communities will be based on community-defined goals and priorities. We need your help to develop the best approach to reduce violence and trauma and build safe, resilient communities.
