Survivor Health Connection Project

One in four women and one in seven men aged 18 and older in the U.S. will have been the victims of severe physical violence in their lifetime (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey 2010). Physical and mental health are essential components of a survivor’s ability to be safe and recover from the physical and mental trauma experienced.

To further our efforts, we have partnered with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families (ACF) Family and Youth Services Bureau, Family Violence Prevention and Services Program (FVPSA); Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC); and HRSA Office of Women’s Health (OWH) to create the Survivor Health Connection Project.

We are conducting a focus survey of The Hotline’s users to learn more about the intersections of domestic violence and primary healthcare. This survey is part of the Survivor Health Connection Project (SHCP), a collaboration between the Administration of Children and Families (ACF), Family and Youth Services Bureau; Heath Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC); and HRSA Office of Women’s Health. The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete.
