A transparent discussion with Veronica Pryor Faciane as we share parts of our stories as survivors of domestic violence. #mentalhealth
According to the CDC, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men will experience physical violence by their intimate partner at some point during their lifetimes. At least 5 million acts of domestic violence occur annually to women aged 18 years and older, with over 3 million involving men (Huecker & Smock, 2020).
I’ll ask the question again: Have you had an open, transparent, and honest conversation with your family, friends, colleagues, and employers about domestic violence? The time is now to #SpeakUp
