Domestic and sexual violence, problematic substance use and mental ill-health are three issues that often co-exist. And when they do, things can become complicated.

This toolkit and e-learning programme are designed to 'uncomplicate' matters by raising professionals' awareness about how the three issues interlink and reflecting on the most effective ways to engage with individuals and families who are affected by these issues.

To this aim, the both the toolkit and e-learning provide information on:
• the links between experiences of domestic and sexual violence, problematic substance use and mental ill-health
• ways to encourage survivors to engage with services and how to meet their needs
• ways to increase safety for survivors and their children
• holding perpetrators accountable for their own violent and abusive behaviour
• developing a holistic approach based on partnerships and integrated work
• practical, adaptable tools which enable organisations to improve policy and practice
