Domestic violence has lasting impacts on the victims and survivors. It can take a few days for the bruises to heal, but sometimes it takes a lifetime for the emotional injuries to heal. If you know someone who is being abused, suspect someone is suffering domestic violence, or if you are being abused -- SPEAK UP AND SPEAK OUT. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month but every day is another opportunity to stop domestic violence.
