Please join us on Monday, March 17 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital in Perkins Auditorium to discuss services and resources available for patients and families coping with Intimate Partner Violence (IPV).
Local agencies supporting IPV prevention and direct services will provide an overview of their programs, resource materials for professionals to use with families, and be available to answer individual questions in a discussion format.
To register click here. Light refreshments will be provided. The program is free, but pre-registration is required.
IPV is a pattern of abusive behavior in any relationship where one partner tries to maintain power and control over another intimate partner. IPV can happen to anyone and affects people of all socioeconomic backgrounds and education levels; occurring in both opposite-sex and same-sex relationships. IPV not only affects those who are abused, but also has a substantial effect on children, family members, friends, co-workers, other witnesses and the community at large.
This program is sponsored by Hallmark Health System’s Department of Case Management, Community Services, Ambulatory Care Outreach, Behavioral Health, Emergency Departments and the Lawrence Memorial/Regis College School of Nursing.
