The Riverside-Massachusetts Trauma Response Network was created to help expand the ability to respond to disasters and traumatic events throughout the state of Massachusetts. It uses a mutual intervention model, with Riverside Trauma Center staff training the staff members at new partners to help them develop locally-based response teams.
This statewide trauma response network currently includes eight agencies: South Shore Mental Health (southeastern Massachusetts), Advocates, Inc. (Marlborough- Framingham area), Behavioral Health Network (Springfield), The Bridge of Central Massachusetts (Worcester), the Brien Center (Berkshire County), LUK, Inc. (north central Massachusetts), Family Services of the Merrimack Valley (northeast Massachusetts), and Community Counseling of Bristol County. Further partnerships are in development to extend our work around the state.
Riverside Trauma Center is a service of Riverside Community Care, a non-profit organization. Services are funded through the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, donations, and grants. There are cases when a fee applies for a service we provide. Please talk to a Riverside Trauma Center staff member about your specific service request to see if there is an associated fee. All contributions are welcome and appreciated.
