Trauma Recovery Network serves victims (and their families) of the following crimes:
- Physical Assault (shot, stabbed or hit)
- Sexual Assault
- Human Trafficking
- Elder Abuse or Neglect
- Child Abuse or Neglect
- Domestic and/or Family Violence
- Family members of Homicide Victims
For many victims of crime, problems can last long after the physical wounds have healed.
Crime victims can suffer fear and shock during the traumatic event, followed by problems with concentration, sleep, and feelings like anger, anxiety, depression, isolation or helplessness.
These responses can also occur in family members of victims.
Survivors of long-term, repeated victimization, including abused children and women, may develop mental health problems that would benefit from support.
While not all crime victims need additional support to deal with the aftermath of victimization, there are many violent crime victims who can benefit from specialized services to help them with the healing process. All Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) services are free for victims and their families.
Mental health providers include Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Mental Health Counselors, and Marriage & Family Therapists.
For many victims, the support, understanding, and counseling provided by Peer Specialists can also be extremely helpful.
