MHP Salud Resource Portfolio:
Resources and Reference Materials on Healthy Relationships
Community Health Worker programs that target survivors of domestic abuse or Initiate Partner Violence (IPV) can generate positive outcomes. CHWs can provide information and education, form community-based support groups, and refer women to community-based individual or group counseling sessions where appropriate. MHP Salud has implemented numerous Community Health Worker (CHW) programs that address the challenges experienced by survivors. While each of the programs are tailored to meet the needs of the local community, many follow the same successful model. These resources provide information and guidance that draws upon our experiences to help CHWs and organizations with CHW programs serve survivors of domestic abuse or IPV. All resources are available for free and licensed to be distributed for educational use.
The Arte de Sobrevivir support group aims to promote healing among women who are primary or secondary survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and/or stalking. This guide builds on the existing strengths of Latina women and utilizes culturally informed tools and approaches. Participants are not only provided with information and form supportive networks with other women in their community, but they also engage in arts and craft projects, which can open space for discussion and healing.
Training for your organization, made simple.
In addition to publishing resources and conducting our own Community Health Worker (CHW) programs, MHP Salud offers a variety of training and consulting services to help organizations create and optimize their own CHW programs.
