DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND MENTAL HEALTH
There’s a topic most people who work in the field of domestic violence don’t like to talk about too much, and perpetrators love to bring up. The connection between mental health and substance abuse is a very easy way to blame the victim in DV situations. But it is a topic that we need to understand.
Dr. Carole Warshaw, MD, Director, National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health, knows the subject and understands what is really going on in the areas of mental health and substance abuse when it comes to gendered violence. She explains not only the numbers and the types of problems, but also the latest research, including the NCDVTMH/National Domestic Violence Hotline Surveys on Mental Health and Substance Abuse Coercion. That study indicates the very high percentage of women whose mental health conditions are being used against them or who are being pushed into substance abuse by perpetrators.
Most importantly, Dr. Warshaw explains the implications of these findings.
