The National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health
29 E. Madison St., Suite 1750
The National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health (the Center), a project of the Chicago-based Domestic Violence & Mental Health Policy Initiative (DVMHPI), was established in response to the overwhelming need to improve services for survivors of domestic violence and their children experiencing a range of mental health concerns.
As a technical assistance institute, the Center carries out its work by:
• Promoting dialogue between domestic violence and mental health organizations, policy-makers, and survivor/advocacy groups about the complex intersections of domestic violence, trauma, and mental health and current strategies to enhance work in this area;
• Building capacity among direct service providers, state domestic violence coalitions, and state mental health and substance abuse systems; and
• Providing recommendations on policies, practices, and collaborative models that will positively impact the lives of survivors and their children, particularly in relation to trauma and mental health.
