    Lakeview Health has made a thoughtful and sincere commitment to the concepts of gender-responsive and trauma-informed treatment services. In this past decade, the issues of gender and trauma have been acknowledged as important components of women’s services, but Lakeview has taken the next step and incorporated these into their men’s treatment. They are to be congratulated on their forward thinking.
