Resilient Wellness

Resilient Wellness

Daisy Ozim started this Resilient Wellness after working within public health where she experienced major barriers to addressing the root causes of health, inequities in a way that was equitable, efficient, and relevant.

Resilient wellness now supports public and private systems with addressing trauma and toxic stress by providing data analytics, health education, and public health-driven technical assistance.

Why do we need Resilient Wellness?

1 in 4 adults in California has indicated experiencing 3 or more Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES).

Lack of culturally relevant providers and services to address complex trauma leads to an increase in the prevalence and incidence of trauma-related illnesses.  Due to unresolved trauma-related illness, annual expenditures on trauma-related illness costs 2.7 trillion annually.

I started this organization after working within public health and experiencing major barriers to addressing the root causes of health inequities in a way that was equitable, efficient, and relevant. I have years of experience in both public health and social entrepreneurship.
