Both clinical and population-based studies have found higher rates of intimate partner violence (IPV) among people who experience psychiatric disabilities. At the same time, experiencing any type of psychiatric condition creates unique risks for survivors of IPV, risks that are important to factor into prevention, crisis recovery, and treatment services. This webinar will provide an overview of research on the intersection of IPV and psychiatric disabilities; guidance on recognizing and responding to IPV during crisis; and practical strategies for addressing some of the unique risks faced by survivors of IPV in the context of mental health care.
