The Resilient Kern (RK) Network of Care model addresses the complex needs and root causes of inter-generational medical and mental health conditions experienced by many Kern County residents. Resilient Kern, by creating a Trauma-Informed Kern County (TIKC), is focused on identifying and working closely with the public and private provider community to mitigate toxic stress, reduce Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), and address underlying social determinants of such health conditions as premature birth, diabetes, asthma, cancer, etc., while acknowledging the strengths and resilience of its residents.
