Last month, we talked about the reasons why someone might stay in an abusive relationship. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In this hour, we will discuss what it takes to leave abusive relationships. What steps do individuals need to take to get away from a violent partner? Who is supporting victims of domestic violence and giving them the tools they need to leave?
