Detecting and Responding Effectively to domestic Abuse in Mental health Settings (DREAMS): Improving service provision for domestic abuse survivors
Funded by the National Institute for Health Research (grant number: NIHR204884), DREAMS is a collaboration between the University of Leicester and Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (NHFT). Led by Dr. Kate Walker (NHFT) with collaboration from Dr Emma Sleath (University of Leicester), DREAMS seeks to address three main research questions:
- What knowledge, attitudes, and understanding do professionals have about identifying and responding to domestic abuse in mental health settings?
- What are the experiences of professionals and service users including the barriers, facilitators, and harms to identification of and responding to domestic abuse in mental health settings?
- What are the key components of a domestic abuse identification and response framework for use in mental health settings?
