The CAHMI seeks to advance healing-centered and trauma-informed approaches to promote individual, family, and community resilience. Compassionate and healing interpersonal relationships, coordinated and evidence-based responses to trauma, and cross-sector
collaboration are key to promoting healing and resilience at the individual and community level.
Prop 64 Recommendations Roadmap
The Child and Adolescent Health Measurement Initiative (CAHMI) staff and consultants developed the Prop 64 Recommendations Roadmap in collaboration with the California Campaign to Counter Childhood Adversity (4 CA) and a multidisciplinary Advisory Committee of
state and national advocates, California community-based organizations, providers and academics.
The Roadmap provides a set of recommendations for California state departments to support culturally responsive, racially just, healing-centered and trauma-informed approaches in the spending of certain Prop 64 marijuana tax initiatives funds. Although
developed specifically in the context of California’s Prop 64, these recommendations have broader applications to policy and practice in other contexts nationwide.
The Recommendations Roadmap serves as a starting point for policy-makers, advocates, and community leaders as they consider and advocate for public policies related to advancing a culturally responsive, racially just, healing-centered and trauma-informed
approach in the expenditure of public funding. We encourage stakeholders to utilize and adapt these recommendations for various audiences and contexts. Moreover, we will continue updating this site with new resources as they develop.
