The National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health worked in partnership with Futures Without Violence and Olga Trujillo, JD to develop a health brochure for those who have survived childhood or adult violence/abuse.
The physical and emotional harm that comes from being abused by a loved one can affect survivors even after the violence has stopped. This brochure offers trauma-informed recommendations for survivors about how to become proactive in their healthcare and how to best advocate for their needs with health care providers. This resource also explores the health impact of abuse and discusses the impact that psychological trauma can have on how we care for our own health and wellness.
The brochure features resources available to domestic and sexual violence survivors including the National Domestic Violence Hotline and RAINN.
