Project explores the impact of violence on college women with disabilities

July 28, 2011

Springtide Resources, an organization dedicated to ending violence against women, has developed a project to explore the impact of violence and violence prevention on college and university campuses within Canada. Women 18 to 29 years of age are invited to share their experiences of violence and violence prevention in one of five focus groups occurring in Toronto.

Criteria for participation include:

  • Attendance at a college or university within the past five years;
  • Have a disability (physical/intellectual/sensory);
  • Be a person with a mental health history or have lived experience of the mental health system
  • Experience deafness or hard of hearing

Every effort will be made to meet the diverse needs of women participating, including disability accommodations, interpreter services, and dietary and cultural considerations.
