Violence in any form is a serious public health problem.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), each year there are over one million people that are battered, abused, and assaulted. Violence can occur among any ethnic, racial, sexual orientation, or age group.
Working together to decrease violence can improve the health of our communities. PHF partners with the CDC to disseminate the following materials to help address this issue:
- Brochure providing information for parents to identify abusive relationships
- Bracelet and bookmark promoting healthy adolescent relationships
- Pocket guide for girls raising awareness about dating abuse prevention

If you know someone in an abusive situation, access the National Domestic Violence Website or call the Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).
