The Trauma Survivors Foundation and the Delaware Beer Fest Download

Dennis Carradin, Founder and CEO of The Trauma Survivor Foundation returned to offer an update on their work, giving survivors of traumatic events access to a network of trained trauma therapists. We talked about his experiences that led to TSF, a chance encounter with a donut shop clerk who revealed her PTSD and lack of funds for help, and his work with the families and survivors of a school shooting. He realized that many lacked ‘follow up,’ they were left to navigate mental health resources on their own.

Since the beginning of the Foundation over 30,000 survivors of various traumatic events: mass shootings, natural disasters, line of duty deaths, motor vehicle collisions, sexual abuse or assault, physical abuse or assault, accidents, illnesses, witness to violence and others were helped through crisis intervention by over 2,500 trained trauma therapists and crisis interventionists participating.

We talked about trauma, what it is and what it isn’t when the term is sometimes overused.  He asks us to consider magnitude, is it an inconvenience or annoyance or is it affecting your daily life.

We discussed the ongoing Hospital Heroes Food Drive, so far providing over 30,000 meals delivered to nurses, doctors, EMS and first responders. They have partnered with hundreds of restaurants to deliver the meals across the region, and are looking for individual and business support to keep the program running.

Finally, we talked about an easy, fun way to support their work, the 2023 Delaware Beer Fest! It’s October 14 in the Figure 8 Barn on the grounds of magnificent Bellevue State Park. You’ll enjoy over a hundred Beer selections from over 70 Breweries.  There will also be food trucks, games and activities and more beer. Tickets are now on sale at delawarebeerfest.com
