Dec 15, 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 three 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 showcase health center-based anti-violence partnerships and practices. Subject matter experts will share how health center staff can create and advocate for violence prevention and intervention practices in their workplace and in their community.
