Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Domestic violence continues to be a serious problem throughout our country, affecting individuals of all ages in every community.

According to the CDC, about 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men have experienced contact sexual violence, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner during their lifetime and reported at least one impact of the violence. Over 43 million women and about 38 million men experienced psychological aggression by an intimate partner in their lifetime as well.

As we continue to work through year two of this pandemic, many individuals are also continuing to find difficulty maneuvering through their everyday lives and managing the stress brought on by COVID-19. September is a crucial month to stop, reflect, and ask yourself the question, “How am I doing?”
 
It’s ok to say “I’m not doing well”. If you’re not feeling like yourself, be sure to reach out to someone you know and don’t be afraid to get something off your chest.
