Experiencing IPV can take a serious toll on your physical well-being and overall health in many ways. Below you will find information on steps to promote your safety and physical health.

  • Call 911 or go to your nearest Emergency Department if you are seriously injured or need immediate medical attention.
  • Share any health concerns with your primary care provider. Did you know experiencing violence is not only associated with injury but also long-lasting health issues?
  • Get tested for sexually transmitted infections (STI). People in relationships that include violence are often at greater risk of contracting an STI. Talk to your provider about how you can reduce your risk.
