Introduction

Mental Health, Substance Abuse and Domestic Violence Cross Training

The Any Door is the Right Door curriculum, originally created with funding from the California Department of Mental Health, was a unique hands-on, multi-disciplinary eight-hour training designed for front-line staff and administrators who were working with women with multiple vulnerabilities: mental health, domestic violence, and/or substance abuse. CEU’s were available for an additional fee.

In addressing domestic violence as a part of the whole, WMHPC strived to create a system that improved providers’ responses to women and girls who sought services, regardless of their point of entry. WMHPC recognized the overlap between DV, MH and AOD. The Any Door curriculum not only worked to prevent domestic violence, but also built cross-discipline networks of providers across multiple regions of California, increasing the safety net for DV survivors and their families.

WMHPC did work with your agency and community to implement the training from start to finish, from finding a host site and enrolling participants to implementing follow-up efforts up to six months after the training was completed.
