Family Mental Health Around The Web #12

My recent post on family addiction issues has prompted me to check for online resources about the family violence.  I was pleased to find several websites to share.  These were all found with just a search for “family violence resources” if you would like to explore further on your own.

Office for Victims of Crime

In the age of computers, you can’t be too careful when it comes to violence in your home.  An abuser is likely to find all sorts of ways to keep tabs on everyone, including online searches.  The Office for Victims of Crime site offers a warning about this and some ways to get around it.  Smart advice for people who are just trying to be safe in their own home.  Also, several publications, info on national organizations, and other websites all just on the front page.

National Domestic Violence Hotline

The National Domestic Violence Hotline website offers current news about domestic violence advocacy and high profile cases involving domestic violence.  On the sidebar, you can click links to share our story or join the campaign.  There’s an entire tab on the top called “Is This Abuse?”  This is a great way to find out if you are truly in a bad situation or not.  The tab next to it is called “Get Help”.  The hot line phone number is also everywhere on this website, most notably at the top right corner.

Domestic Violence Resources

One more simple but good resource about domestic violence.  This is just one basic web page, but it contains a list of various coalitions and organizations around the country that work to prevent or provide help for domestic violence situations.  Also, a lot of contact info at the bottom about the person who compiled all the info.

Good Info To Have One Hand

Hopefully, you won’t ever need this information.  But in case you do (even for a friend), bookmark these to keep them handy.  Take care and let me know about other domestic violence resources you are aware of, either locally or nationally.  You never know when someone needs the information you have!
