Realizing Opportunities for Self Supported Improvement (ROSSI)

The research team for this study, funded by the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), wants to see if a 6-month personalized program helps improve quality of life and safety for people who have experienced interpersonal violence and depression.

The personalized program includes working with a care-partner to help prioritize needs and develop a plan to improve those needs.


As of June 2018, we are 2/3 of the way through our recruitment (we have 5 more months to go). We have also had 6 community advisory board meetings to share ideas and progress.


The research team distributes a newsletter every other month to stay connected to study participants, share inspirational ideas, and highlight resources in our community. View available copies:


Here is a list of phone numbers and websites that offer important assistance and information about interpersonal violence:
