Violence is a preventable health care issue.

Violence prevention and intervention programs are a powerful way to stop the revolving door of violent injury in our hospitals and communities. Engaging patients in the hospital, during their recovery, is a golden opportunity to change their lives and reduce retaliation and recidivism.

The National Network of Hospital-based Violence Intervention Programs (NNHVIP) brings together the best and most exciting programs to share knowledge, develop best practices, collaborate on research, affect policy change, and more.

Whether you are an emerging program, have an established program, or are just thinking about starting a program, NNHVIP is here to help you reach your goals. Get in touch today!
