October is nationally recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Each year, between 960,000 and 3,000,000 cases of domestic abuse are filed. On top of the reported cases, there are many other incidents that go unreported. In the Unites States alone, it is estimated that 1 in 4 women, and 1 in 7 men are victims of domestic abuse every year. There are a variety of resources you can contact to report an incident. The national domestic violence hotline is 1-800-799-7233 (SAFE) and their website is www.thehotline.org. There are also resources through the wing’s Director of Psychological Health, Chaplain’s office, or SAPR office. Together, we can be the change.
