8th Annual SIM Conference Recap

Mid Shore Behavioral Health, Inc.'s 8th Annual Sequential Intercept Mapping Model (SIM) Conference  was held virtually on Friday, March 4, 2022. The theme of the training was Race Based Stress and Trauma: The Impact of Racial Disparities in Systemic Injustice. The 2022 SIM Conference featured an impressive lineup of local, county, and statewide leaders acknowledging the very real consequences of race-based trauma and bias in the judicial system.

 

Speakers included Wardens and Directors of mid-shore County Detention Centers, national equity leaders, and directors of community organizations working to prevent advancement in the Sequential Intercept Map. Attendees also heard from individuals who have themselves been through the judicial system, sharing their experiences from the inside now that they have transitioned to the outside world.
