FUTURES worked in partnership with Olga Trujillo, JD and the National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health to develop a health brochure for those who have survived childhood or adult violence/abuse. The physical and emotional harm that comes from being abused by a loved one can affect survivors even after the violence has stopped. The brochure offers trauma-informed recommendations for survivors about how to become proactive in their healthcare and how to best advocate for their needs with health care providers.
The 6-panel (8.5” x 11” tri-fold) brochure also explores the health impact of abuse and discusses the impact that psychological trauma can have on a survivor’s ability to actively care for their health and wellness. The brochure features resources available to domestic and sexual violence survivors including the National Hotline on Domestic Violence and RAINN.
