Healing services for survivors of interpersonal violence. 

The UCSF Trauma Recovery Center envisions a world where every survivor of violence gets the help they need to heal. We eliminate barriers to healing and inspire survivors to embrace hope.

Our Mission

Serving adult survivors of interpersonal violence and traumatic loss, we provide respectful, compassionate, and effective mental health and support services.

What We Do

The UCSF TRC model combines assertive outreach, advocacy, evidence-based mental health services, and comprehensive case management tailored for each person in our program.  We strive to meet each client where they are, emotionally and physically.  Our experienced, multilingual, diverse staff serve adult survivors of physical assault, sexual assault, community violence, domestic violence, police brutality, and those who have lost a loved one to homicide.

How We Help

Trauma can have a devastating impact on people at emotional, physical, spiritual and financial levels.  Our multidisciplinary team works together to support healing and recovery, and strives to create an environment where survivors feel welcome, safe, listened to and respected.


TRC clients have access to wraparound care that includes: individual and group psychotherapy, case management (help with needs such as shelter/ housing, financial benefits, food and clothing, legal advocacy and linkage to medical care), and trauma-informed psychiatry. Services are free and we welcome people of all immigration statuses.


Services include individual and group therapy and crisis intervention, using evidence-based and evidence-informed practices to lower distress, and increase safety and wellness.

Trauma-informed Flexible Care

Depending on need and circumstances, providers can work with clients at the clinic, in the community, at home visits and/or via telehealth.
