The National Elder Abuse MDT Peer Support Community

Handshaking for MDT Peer Support ListServ Community
MDT Peer Support Listserv Community

In collaboration with the California District Attorney's Association (CDAA), the Elder Justice Initiative (EJI) has created a peer support community to aid elder justice multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) to communicate with and learn from one another. This community includes a traditional moderated listserv, a documents library for sharing relevant resources, and provides the ability for members to message each other directly. This project is one of a series of resources created by EJI to enhance communication and collaboration among elder justice projects across the country and support the development and sustainability of elder abuse multidisciplinary teams.

As an elder justice professional serving on an elder abuse MDT, you are part of a small specialized community.  We designed this forum to provide an opportunity for teams to lean on one another’s unique experiences, expertise and perspective.  If you would like to join the National Elder Abuse MDT Peer Support Community, please follow the steps outlines below.
