Using Social Media to Increase Awareness

health graphic to share

With new national health policy recommendations in support of screening for domestic violence, using social media can support your marketing and outreach for upcoming health and domestic violence trainings or events, or help get the conversation started.

To help health care providers with their online organizing efforts, Futures Without Violence developed ten distinct graphics to make the case that asking patients about abuse is good medicine. These graphics may be posted via Facebook, Twitter and e-mail. The graphics provide links to the Health Cares About IPV Toolkit, which contains all of the information one needs to get started on screening patients for domestic and sexual violence.
