Abstract

Services commissioned to support women with mental health
problems, problematic substance use and experiences of
domestic violence (DV) and sexual violence (SV) often work
independently, despite the intersectionality of these issues. Frontline practitioners do not always have the training, assessment tools or referral pathways to address all three
issues when they co-­‐occur. Operational and monitoring
frameworks do not always make the links between the
issues which result in women falling through gaps in service
provision. Therefore, the aim of the Stella Project Mental
Health Initiative (SPMHI) was to empower service providers
across the three sectors of substance use (SU), mental
health (MH) and violence against women (VAW) to develop
this work through knowledge transfer, policy development
support and promoting strong partnerships and monitoring
mechanisms. In assessing the efficacy of the SPMHI, an
evaluation was commissioned which has collected data
before and after the intervention took place.
