Toolkit: Coercion Related to Mental health and Substance Use in the Context of Intimate Partner Violence
Research shows that there are high rates of intimate partner violence (IPV) among people accessing mental health and substance use disorder treatment. Coercion is a common tactic used by perpetrators of IPV, and there are many ways that coercion can be used among victims who have mental health and/or substance use disorders. This toolkit, created by the National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health, provides trauma-informed guidance on integrating questions about mental health and substance abuse use coercion into mental health and substance use histories and into in-depth intimate partner violence assessments in primary care and behavioral health settings.
