Our Safety Planning Tool

The Inside Story

Real Stories, Real People

“It was a kind of emotional pain that I had never experienced before. Words can’t even describe it. It was like labor pains to the heart. But every day since, I have taken another step out of the pit I was in. Every day that passed, I became stronger; I felt my confidence returning. I felt brave. I started experiencing joy. I started laughing again. It was almost euphoric.”


We know awareness is critical to ending violence because we can’t stop what we don’t know enough about. So, that’s the goal here. We want to share our knowledge with you.
