I first met Jason Bagley when I was chief resilience officer at Louisville Metro government. Together, we advocated on behalf of homeless individuals and families who were facing tremendous obstacles. Today we discuss his path from the foothills of Mt. Hood, Ore., to the circus, and then to the city of Louisville where he worked at a homeless shelter for 21 years. Bagley is currently the BHDID program manager in the Adult Mental Health and Recovery Services Branch at the Division of Mental Health. We’ll share what we have learned firsthand about trauma, resilience and how to best advocate for Kentuckians who are displaced.
