Working at the Intersection of Intimate Partner Violence and Mental Health

About the Series:

While it has long been recognized that intimate partner violence can have significant mental health and substance use-related effects, the lack of collaboration and cross-training among providers often leaves survivors and their families without ways to address both safety and recovery needs. Intimate partner violence is prevalent among people accessing mental health services, but often goes unnoticed or unaddressed when mental health providers are unaware or unsure of how to help.

This series, brought to you by the MHTTC Network and the National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health, introduces key issues at the intersection of intimate partner violence and mental health, and prepares mental health providers to better respond to the needs of individuals and families affected by intimate partner violence. Experts devoted the first segment of each hour-long session to a specific topic and then addressed questions submitted by registrants. Recordings of the presentations and additional resources, including an FAQ document, are posted below. Download the series flyer here.

Presenters for the Series:

Carole Warshaw, MD, Director, NCDVTMH and Gabriela Zapata-Alma, LCSW, CADC, Director of Policy and Practice on Domestic Violence and Substance Use, NCDVTMH
