If You See Domestic Abuse Speak UpBy Military OneSourceAug. 19, 20174 Minutes
In this podcast, you will learn more about the signs of domestic abuse and what you can do to help.
Helping victims of domestic abuse can be tough. You might not know how to help, who to talk to or may question whether it’s your place to intervene. But domestic abuse is everyone’s problem, and if you see something, speak up. Domestic abuse tends to escalate over time and can be a matter of life and death. Service members who are victims of abuse are often reluctant to report. You can help by reaching out to the victim and showing your concern for their health and safety. You can also encourage them to contact the Family Advocacy Program to speak to a victim advocate; contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-799-SAFE (7233) or call Military OneSource for confidential non-medical counseling at 800-342-9647.
