The Regional center on violence, traumatic stress and suicide prevention, Region Mid-Norway, is part of Department of Research and Development, St. Olavs Hospital, Trondheim University Hospital.
The center consists of professionals with different academic and professional backgrounds. We are interdisciplinary, and assist various agencies in the region with expertise.
We are available for professionals and others who through their work meet people affected by violence and sexual abuse, traumatic stress, forced migration or suicidal ideation.
Our partners are the health and social services in local authorities, specialist health services, public, private and voluntary organizations that provide assistance to people and patients exposed to violence and crisis.
We contribute to skills development through research and development. Dissemination of knowledge of trauma and traumatic stress is a key part of our work and we provide guidance, consultation, teaching, courses and conferences. We aim to be easily accessible.
