The National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health was established in 2005 through a grant to the Domestic Violence & Mental Health Policy Initiative (DVMHPI) from the Family Violence Prevention and Services Program (FVPSA); Administration on Children, Youth and Families; U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. DVMHPI is a Chicago-based project founded in 1999 that works to address the unmet mental health needs of domestic violence survivors and their children and the traumatic effects of abuse across the lifespan. See DVMHPI for more information.

The Center is one of four national Special Issue Resource Centers funded through FVPSA and is a member of the Domestic Violence Resource Network (DVRN).
