Integrated Services for Victims Program: Increasing Access to Mental Health Services for Victims of Crime
The goal of this program is to bridge the divide between crime victims, victim services providers, and mental health services providers so that communities are able to create a seamless network of services to assist crime victims to recover, heal, and thrive.
The program has 3 purpose areas:
- Suicide prevention gatekeeper training for crime victim advocates - A gatekeeper is an individual who has personal contact with the community and who, with the proper training, has the ability to identify suicide risk and refer to appropriate services.
- Increasing access to victim services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault who have a serious mental illness - This may involve direct services or training and technical assistance to increase the capacity of service organizations to meet the needs of victims.
- Increasing access to mental health services to traditionally underserved victims of crime - Traditionally underserved refers to individuals who are members of any of the following populations of victims of crime: deaf and hard-of-hearing; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender; American Indians/Alaska Natives; older adults; limited English proficient individuals; and those who reside in rural communities.
Each purpose area and sub-purpose area have specific eligibility criteria.
