Trauma Recovery Center

Trauma is often thought of as an injury resulting from a motor vehicle crash or gunshot wound. However, trauma can be any event resulting in physical, emotional, or life-threatening harm that has lasting adverse effects on an individual. After a traumatic injury, some survivors may experience lasting negative effects impacting their mental health. The Trauma Recovery Center (TRC) is working to promote resiliency and holistic recovery for survivors following a traumatic injury. 


To maximize the recovery of traumatically injured patients, families and communities through support, mental health services, education and access to resources


To be the regional leader in trauma recovery for patients, families and communities, easing the burden and facilitating holistic healing


The Trauma Recovery Center at Henry Ford Hospital was created in March of 2022 by an interdisciplinary team that includes representatives from trauma surgery, orthopaedic surgery, behavioral health, emergency medicine, pediatrics and the Office of Community Health, Equity, Wellness & Diversity. With the understanding that survivors of a traumatic injury are faced with unique challenges on their road to recovery, the TRC is working to ease the burden for survivors and their families and facilitate holistic healing, regardless of financial status. Following the Trauma Recovery Center model created by the University of California- San Francisco, the TRC will be able to provide wrap around services including clinical case management and trauma-informed and evidence-based behavioral health services. 

As a member of the American Trauma Society’s© Trauma Survivors Network, the TRC is able to provide a host of resources to ease the burden for survivors and their families. Through our peer mentorship program, survivors with lived experiences are able to provide support and mentorship to patients and their families.
