2018 Domestic Violence Prevention Month Toolkit

Since 1981, October has been commemorated as National Domestic Violence Prevention Month. The observance serves to educate communities, individuals, couples and families about Family Advocacy Program services and other community resources that can help prevent, raise awareness of community responsibility and resources for addressing domestic abuse.

The Family Advocacy Program and Military OneSource are working together to help our audiences understand the signs of healthy, unhealthy and controlling behaviors and learn ways to improve relationships — through information, skill-building resources, counseling support and more. The 2018 Domestic Violence Prevention Month campaign, “Know the Signs,” is designed to help service members, military spouses and intimate partners build, maintain or strengthen their relationship and prevent domestic abuse. The campaign focus is to reach people as early in the relationship lifecycle as possible, invite them to think about their relationship, and consider whether it could be classified as healthy, unhealthy or abusive.

If you are sponsoring or contributing to this campaign in your community, reference and download the 2018 Domestic Violence Prevention Month Messaging one-pager.

Be sure to share information on how to get support with everyone during October. You never know who may need reporting resources or immediate help.
