The Manitoba Trauma Information and Education Centre (MTIEC) provides workshops and trainings on Trauma Informed Care and Vicarious Trauma to service providers and organizations in Winnipeg and across the province of Manitoba.
MTIEC does not provide direct counselling or referrals. Its goal is to promote and support trauma recovery by empowering service providers and people affected by psychological trauma across the life span through the exchange, transfer, and translation of knowledge and through education and public awareness.
MTIEC was established in 2011 by the Province of Manitoba. The MTIEC is a program of Klinic Community Health located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The creation of the MTIEC is a community initiative lead by the Manitoba Trauma Collaborative and is a direct result of a provincial forum on trauma that took place in 2007. The goal of the provincial forum was to develop a strategy for enhancing the capacity of organizations and systems to better meet the needs of people who had been affected by trauma.
