Complicated Matters: The links between experiences of domestic and sexual violence, substance use and mental ill-health
Domestic and sexual violence, substance use and mental ill-health are three issues which often co-exist. And when they do, things can become complicated. This training will ‘uncomplicate’ matters by raising awareness about the links between experiences of domestic and sexual violence, substance use and mental ill-health. You will learn effective ways to engage with individuals and families who are affected by these issues.
