    October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

    Domestic Violence Awareness Month

    Domestic violence is an epidemic affecting individuals in every community. It is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior that is only a fraction of a systematic pattern of dominance and control. Domestic violence can result in physical injury, psychological trauma and, in severe cases, even death. The devastating physical, emotional, and psychological consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and last a lifetime.

    More information about domestic violence awarness can be found at the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence website.
