As the threat of the lone-actor attacks grows, we must build the capacity of local initiatives to prevent targeted violence and terrorism.

The McCain Institute is building a national network of interdisciplinary professionals dedicated to preventing targeted violence, terrorism and their impacts within the United States. This network will both increase the efficacy of locally based prevention frameworks and programs and expand referrals to qualified programs throughout the country. The architecture and implementation of this network is made possible through funding from the Department of Homeland Security’s Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships.

The McCain Institute is:

  • Establishing a network of interdisciplinary professionals dedicated to addressing hate-based violence and conduct outreach across the mental and behavioral health sector to grow the network.
  • Hosting intensive workshops that address common design challenges, such as how to navigate privacy and ethical obligations, how to manage litigation risks and secure insurance, and how to manage litigation risks and secure insurance, and how to approach threat assessment.
  • Developing a framework for program design that features existing resources, relevant considerations, and actionable recommendations for each design decision.
  • Creating an asset map of mental and behavioral health willing to accept targeted violence and terrorism prevention referrals.
