This September, we honor and reflect on Suicide Prevention Month. This episode features a conversation with experienced hotline advocate and trainer, Andrene Baxter, about what advocacy looks like on a DV hotline, including accessibility, safety planning, assessing for risk, and providing support to callers who may be in crisis.
Hotlines are a key way survivors of DV get connected to help, as well as a validating space for support, information, and access to resources.
You can also find us on social media - stay tuned for DVAM in October:
