Tools for Advocates

shutterstock_126648692Just as health care providers have a unique opportunity to support survivors and prevent violence, domestic and sexual violence (DSV) advocates play an important role in the health and well-being of their clients.  There are many ways that advocates can bring health into conversations around safety and self-determination in order to promote better short and long term health outcomes for survivors. Future’s Without Violence’s National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence (HRC) offers several tools for advocacy programs working to incorporate health and forge partnerships with health care providers.
