Survivors Support Group

Domestic violence, or intimate partner violence (IPV) is a public health problem that affects millions of people in the US each year. Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS) indicate that bout one in four women and nearly one in 10 men have experienced contact sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner during their lifetime and reported some form of IPV-related impact. Over 43 million women and 38 million men have experienced psychological aggression by an intimate partner in their lifetime. Survivors can experience mental health problems such as depression and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms, according to the CDC.

When it comes to healing from domestic violence, it helps to have people you can talk to on a regular basis. This ongoing communication not only helps you make sense of what you’re experiencing, but also provides support, validation, and resources from people who have been through the same things you’ve been through.
