Help for Female Domestic Violence in USA

If you have experienced violence, you may feel shock, fear, sadness, and confusion. You may even feel numb, or think that what happens to you doesn't matter. But no one has the right to hurt you or make you feel afraid. Many groups and people want to help you live a healthier, happier life.  Check here for more information: Women's Health USA

Help for Male Domestic Violence Victims

While the majority of domestic violence victims are women, abuse of men happens far more often than you'd probably expect. Typically, men are physically stronger than women but that doesn't necessarily make it easier to escape the violence or the relationship. An abused man faces a shortage of resources, skepticism from police, and major legal obstacles, especially when it comes to gaining custody of his children from an abusive mother. No matter your age, occupation, or sexual orientation, though, you can overcome these challenges and escape the abuse. For more information go here: Help for Abused Men
