Riverside Trauma Center
The Riverside Trauma Center helps people recover from the overwhelming stress caused by traumatic events through community outreach, consultation, and counseling. We often work with first responders to these traumatic events by providing “psychological first aid”. We work with cities, towns, school systems, and private corporations faced with the emotional aftermath of tragic events such as natural disasters, homicides, terrorism, or teen suicides. We also provide educational seminars to both communities and organizations on topics which include suicide prevention, psychological trauma, and the emotional needs of returning veterans.

Riverside Trauma Center & Walpole High School
Sarah Gaer, Suicide Prevention Specialist at Riverside Trauma Center, worked with Walpole High School students through FIRE Within, an innovative teen suicide prevention program. The students created the film “We Are Strong” to address their mental health struggles and thoughts of suicide – and the hope they’ve found. View the movie below:
We are pleased to share comments from the people we serve:
"I can't say enough wonderful things about the Newton Outreach Program. Many other therapists were unable to break through my son’s strong, protective shell. Quickly and quietly, Marianne gained his trust and she became part of all of our lives. You helped us gain wisdom and taught us how to appreciate the wonderful aspects of life while accepting the challenges."
