SHE’S THE CRAZY ONE: HOW ABUSERS DANCE WITH MENTAL HEALTH
Mental health professionals are a valued and necessary part of our world and they can do a lot of good. But what happens when the idea of mental health, mental illness, and even the professionals who help us, are used and exploited to make things worse for those victimized by domestic violence?
Rachel Graber has worked in human services for seven years as a school counselor, an intern at Meskwaki Child and Victims Services, and a public policy intern at the Women’s Resource and Action Center. She leads the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence legislative affairs in Washington, DC. She sits on the National Task Force to End Domestic and Sexual Violence, a national public policy collaboration between violence against women organizations, organizes NCADV Congressional briefings and legislative events, lobbies Congress on issues related to gender based violence, and helps mobilize efforts to influence national legislation aimed at protecting and providing safe alternatives for victims of domestic violence.
And she knows that exploiting mental health resources and professionals is often a way abusers control, win, and further victimize others.
Join us as we talk about how a perpetrator can use and abuse mental health resources, definitions, and perceptions.
