We’re Hiring: Project Specialist

Organizational Overview

The National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma, and Mental Health (NCDVTMH) promotes survivor-defined healing, liberation, and equity by transforming the systems that impact survivors of domestic and sexual violence and their families. We envision a society where all people are free of systemic, collective, and individual trauma. NCDVTMH enhances agency- and system-level responses to survivors and their families through comprehensive training and technical assistance, research and evaluation, policy development, and public awareness. Emphasizing an accessible, culturally responsive, and trauma-informed (ACRTI) approach, we offer training and consultation to domestic violence and sexual assault advocates, programs, and coalitions; healthcare, mental health, and substance use treatment providers; legal and child welfare professionals; and local, state, and federal policymakers.

NCDVTMH’s work is guided by the experiences of domestic and sexual violence survivors and their families, up-to-date research, and by an intersectional analysis of how systems impact the lives of survivors. Our work addresses the realities faced by marginalized communities and is aligned with the broader anti-violence movement. NCDVTMH works in close partnership with allied organizations committed to gender, racial, economic, and social justice. NCDVTMH is one of four national Special Issue Resource Centers funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; Administration on Children, Youth and Families; Family Violence Prevention and Services Program.
