Do you know the signs to prevent domestic violence?

Local News

Domestic Violence can devastate families and neighborhoods, but is preventable.  It’s all about connecting victims to the resources available to them.  

The Utah Domestic Violence Coalition is working to make sure everyone who needs help, get it.

The statistics are heart breaking; 42% of all homicides since 2000 have been domestic violence and in 22% of the cases children were either involved or witnessed the homicide.

Because this problem is so rampant in our state, everyone needs to know the warning signs to a problem.

Abuse can occur in many forms:

    Physical

    Emotional

    Financial

    Sexual

    Digital

    Reproductive coercion

If you think there is a problem, asking for help from the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition can help if there is a problem or ease your concerns if there is not.

Free and confidential help and support for victims and survivors of domestic violence is available 24/7:  1-800-897-LINK (5465) and online at UDVC.org.

For anyone in immediate danger, or in an emergency, call 911 immediately.
