Riverside Trauma Center

Trauma Response

Riverside Trauma Center offers support services including on-site response, grief counseling, and referrals to help people after critical incidents. Extreme stress following a trauma can be overwhelming and cause lasting psychological effects. Examples of incidents at which we have provided response and crisis management include:

  • Schools where students have died by suicide, homicide, medical, or accidental causes
  • Communities affected by tornadoes, floods, or other natural disasters
  • Violence in a school, workplace, or community
  • Highly stressful events in a workplace (e.g., assault, arrests, reduction in workforce, etc.)

Riverside Trauma Center also coordinates the statewide Riverside-Massachusetts Trauma Response Network, which trains and partners with other organizations to develop locally-based response teams throughout the Commonwealth.
