Community Violence and Mental Health: Supporting Patients and Building Resilience

Oct 25, 2021  02:00 PM  EST

 

Community violence is an urgent public health issue and an important social determinant of health. Experiencing or witnessing community violence can impact one’s physical, psychological, and emotional health. Community health centers can play a unique role in identifying, treating, and preventing violence exposure. This is part one of a three-part webinar series that will discuss the impact of community violence on the mental health of patients and health center staff, and showcase health center-based violence prevention and intervention strategies. Each webinar is structured to allow for a brief didactic, facilitated panel discussion, and Q&A.

This session will focus on the effects of community violence on patient mental health, and strategies to support patients and build resilience. Subject matter experts will share personal stories, promising healthcare interventions, and tools for health center staff.

Audience: Clinical and Non Clinical Health Center Staff, Community Partners, Academic Institutions 

Registration is now closed.
