How UCSF implemented the Trauma Recovery Center model
In response to growing research about the long-term impact of trauma on health, UCSF launched the TRC to support underserved communities. The TRC’s mental health clinicians offer evidence-based therapy and case management for adults who are:
- Survivors of violent crime (including those who have experienced domestic violence, gang-related violence, violence at the hands of the police, or lost a loved one to homicide)
- Survivors of sexual assault (services include a physical exam, prophylactic STI treatment, forensic evidence collection, law enforcement coordination, and connection with social services)
- Immigrants who experienced violent crime outside the U.S.
- Patients with a traumatic brain injury
