Mental Health and Substance Use Coercion:
Results of Two National Surveys and Implications for Practice

Tuesday, March 31, 2015 | 2:00 – 3:30pm (CST)

Research has consistently demonstrated that survivors of domestic violence are at greater risk for experiencing a range of mental health and substance use conditions. Yet, most are not asked about their partners’ efforts to undermine their sanity or sobriety, to control their medication and treatment, or to sabotage their recovery and access to resources and support—tactics referred to as mental health and substance use coercion.

This webinar will present the results of two surveys conducted by the National Domestic Violence Hotline (NDVH) highlighting the prevalence of mental health and substance use coercion among NDVH callers and the key issues raised by the survivors and advocates who participated in these surveys. It will also offer policy and practice recommendations for responding to mental health and substance use coercion in health, mental health, substance abuse, legal, and DV advocacy settings.
