October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Domestic violence, also referred to as intimate partner violence (IPV), is defined as a pattern of behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship. According to the CDC, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men have experienced domestic violence.
For more information and resources, please visit the National Domestic Violence Hotline or contact ESP at 1-800-521-1377 to speak confidentially with a counselor. Counselors are available Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m
