Member Spotlight: Advocates Against Family Violence
Where to start…… We are so blessed to have a wonderful community supporting our efforts of ending violence in the Treasure Valley, most specifically in Canyon County. It truly keeps our mission alive and moving forward. We started 2020 with great fervor and the momentum has not stopped. Here’s a few of our highlights:
We are now gearing up for our Masquerade Ball, April 4, as well as preparing for Sexual Assault Awareness and Child Abuse Prevention Month in April!!!
Webinar: SAMHSA and ACF Information Memorandum on Working at the Intersections of Domestic Violence, Substance Use and Mental Health: Research; Resources; and Implications for State, Territory, and Tribal DV and DV/SA Coalitions and State FVPSA Administrators
Tuesday, April 7th from 5 pm – 6 pm EST
It has long been recognized that domestic violence can have significant mental health and substance use-related effects. Yet, the lack of collaboration between systems often leave survivors and their families without ways to address both safety and recovery needs. In order to address these gaps in services, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and Administration for Children and Families (ACF) issued an Information Memorandum calling for increased collaboration between domestic violence, mental health, and substance use disorder treatment providers and systems. This webinar will provide an overview of key issues, recommendations and resources highlighted in the Information Memorandum as well as policy-relevant data from two national NCDVTMH surveys – one of DV programs and one of state women’s substance use coordinators. It will also provide an opportunity to discuss policy and practice implications for State, Territory, and Tribal Coalitions and State FVPSA Administrators.
Webinar will be hosted by NNEDV on Tuesday, April 7th from 5 pm – 6 pm EST and facilitated by the National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma and Mental Health.
