No More Abuse

Past and Present

Children exposed to domestic violence at home are more likely to have health problems, including becoming sick more often, having frequent headaches or stomachaches, and being more tired and lethargic. Children are more likely to intervene when they witness severe violence against a parent – which can place a child at great risk for injury or even death.


Despair

Domestic violence victims face high rates of depression, sleep disturbances, anxiety, flashbacks, and other emotional distress. Domestic violence contributes to poor health for many survivors including chronic conditions such as heart disease or gastrointestinal disorders. Most women brought to emergency rooms due to domestic violence were socially isolated and had few social and financial resources.

Abuse

Women ages 18 to 34 are at greatest risk of becoming victims of domestic violence. More than 4 million women experience physical assault and rape by their partners.
