Is Your Relationship Affecting Your Health? General Health Safety Card: Farsi (PDF ONLY)

farsi_resourcestitleThis 4-panel double-sided tool folds up to the size of a business card (3.5″ x 2″) and was designed for women who speak Farsi receiving health care services, domestic violence services, or services in other community-based settings.  The card helps women recognize how their relationship impacts their health as well as the lives of their children and provides information on safety planning. The safety card lists specific health problems that may be the result of chronic stress from an abusive relationship. It also offers women who are in abusive relationships guidance on talking with their children.

The backside of the card refers people to the National Domestic Violence Hotline for further support. The hotline offers interpretation for Farsi. This tool is most effective when placed in private areas such as restrooms and exam rooms and may be given to patients routinely as part of regular visits, or upon disclosure of abuse. This card was translated by professional linguists and then reviewed by a committee of native Farsi speakers.

The card is available as a PDF download only.
