The Relationship Between Domestic Violence and Mental Health
The effects of domestic violence have far-reaching implications, not only for the victim, but also for their family, friends and other loved ones who may be exposed or aware of the abuse. Abuse can affect the way we feel about ourselves, the way we take care for ourselves, and how we interact with others. Beyond that, domestic violence can also have a profound impact on our mental health and sometimes lead to serious and/or chronic mental health conditions.
Domestic Violence Awareness and Resources
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, reminding us that an end to domestic violence can start with just one small action - whether that is to seek help or to share resources. Today, we will do our best to raise awareness by providing useful information, along with local (WY & ID) and national resources for victims of domestic violence. Please share these facts and resources to help spread awareness ... you just might change a life!
