The month of October is National Domestic Violence Awareness month. As a survivor myself, I will proudly state that there is no shame in needing assistance. If you know or think you may be in an abusive relationship, there is help available. If you know someone who is in an abusive relationship and you're wondering how to help, there are resources for you as well.
To learn more about these issues and how you can become part of the solution visit nnedv.org
