Stand Together 2018 Featuring Travis Lloyd

Keynote: The 'Just 1 Person' keynote presentation shares stories about Travis Lloyd’s personal journey through a difficult childhood that led to foster care, group homes, and a stay in an inpatient mental health unit. The stories shared highlight specific moments when ‘Just 1 Person’ at a time empowered Travis to overcome negative circumstances. Those highlighted include a foster parent, a teacher, and a kinship care-giver – all of whom demonstrated replicable trauma informed care principles through their actions.

The stories also share the reality of intergenerational cycles by describing the good and bad aspects of his family’s journey over the span of 20+ years.

The keynote ends with stories about professional experiences from Mr. Lloyd’s time as an inpatient psychiatric RN and as a Mental Health Mobile Crisis Worker. The examples chosen for the closing provide practical approaches for connecting and understanding in crisis in a trauma informed manner. This keynote is intended to remind those who work in serving professions of their “Why” and inspire a renewed sense of purpose.
