Addressing Mental Health Needs of Secondary Homicide Survivors Through a Social Determinants of Health Framework

Drawing on a social determinants of health framework, death records, and Medicaid data were linked at the individual and family level to examine mental health outcomes among secondary homicide survivors in the 12 months following a homicide of a loved one.

Data for this study were obtained from death records between January 1, 2008 and December 31, 2015 and Medicaid claims data between January 1, 2007 and December 31, 2016. A wider date range was included for Medicaid claims in order to obtain mental health history of individuals during the 12 months preceding and following the homicide event.
