Description: This webinar will be held as part of Health Cares About Domestic Violence Day (HCADV), a nationally-recognized awareness day that takes place annually on the second Wednesday of October. HCADV Day aims to reach members of the healthcare and advocacy communities to offer education about the critical importance of universal education to promote healthy relationships, to address the health impact of abuse, and offer warm referrals to domestic violence advocates.
In recognition of HCADV Day, Health Partners on IPV + Exploitation and National Health Care for the Homeless Council are excited to release a new toolkit, Intimate Partner Violence, Homelessness, and Behavioral Health developed for Health Care for the Homeless Health Centers and their community-based partners. The toolkit addresses the intersections of intimate partner violence, human trafficking, homelessness, behavioral health and gender. Speakers will provide an overview of the new toolkit and provide a deeper look at how organizations can authentically engage consumer leaders in the effort to end homelessness, IPV and human trafficking.
As a result of this webinar, participants will be able to:
Describe HCADV Day and opportunities for participating in the day of action.
Navigate the new toolkit on IPV, homelessness, human trafficking and behavioral health.
Explain the value of consumer leadership and identify two strategies for supporting consumer leadership and peer support.
