Toolkit and Webinar for Mental Health Professionals

We are pleased to offer continuing education credit through the Oregon chapter of the National Association of Social Workers for our webinar, Safety and Ethical Considerations for Mental Health Providers Responding to Domestic Violence. The accompanying toolkit provides basic information about domestic violence for mental health professionals, including types of abuse, indicators, screening and risk assessment, safety planning, and connecting with community programs.

"Predatory Sex Offender Alert" Flyers

It has come to our attention that "Predatory Sex Offender Alert" flyers with the Oregon Coalition's logo have appeared in several public locations in the Portland area. We DID NOT create or distribute this flyer, so we cannot comment on its nature or content.

If you need support or assistance regarding domestic or sexual violence issues, please call the Statewide Crisis Hotline at 1-888-235-5333.
