Trauma Centers

The Richmont Trauma Center has been created to provide quality mental health treatment to those impacted by single episode and complex trauma. We are honored to walk the journey with individuals and families as they work to heal and grow.

We honor the difficult process in which a client works to reestablish safety in their world, learns effective emotion management and health coping skills, and integrates their traumatic experience(s) within the established safety of the present.

Trauma Questionnaire

This is a screen that is meant to get you thinking about your trauma history.  Because it is a self-report measure and is not exhaustive in its content, do not assume if you have a low score that you would not be a good candidate for the Richmont Trauma Center.  It is part of beginning a conversation in your life about trauma, but not meant to be the end of the conversation if your score is lower than you might expect.
