Description Both intimate partner violence (IPV) and suicidal behavior are significant public health concerns for women. This presentation discusses these two public health conditions, as well as the link between IPV and suicide attempts. Then, attention is paid to the description of the Grady Nia Project, which is an empowerment-based group intervention designed to reduce those risk factors and enhance those protective factors associated with suicidal behavior among women in abusive partnerships. Data supporting the efficacy and effectiveness of the Grady Nia Project will be shared. Finally, case vignettes will be used to illustrate the lives and experiences of the women in the Grady Nia Project.
