May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a time for NCDVTMH to redouble our efforts to ensure every community has access to culturally responsive, DSV- and trauma-informed mental health care. The resources below are geared toward domestic and sexual violence (DSV) program staff who work with survivors facing mental health challenges, as well as mental health practitioners in DSV and clinical settings.
