NLM Resources to Prevent Domestic Violence

Posted by on October 20th, 2016 Posted in: Consumer Health, Education, Health Professionals, K-12, Public Health


From the Outreach and Special Populations Branch:

Domestic violence is a form of abuse that often involves a spouse or partner, but it can also be directed towards a child, older adult, or other family member. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and the National Library of Medicine has domestic violence prevention resources available for the general public and special populations, such as older adults, children/teens, non-English speakers, and individuals who are HIV positive:

  • General Public: MedlinePlus has a Health Topics page on Domestic Violence, including links to prevention and safety planning information, how to find an expert, and information for children and teens.
  • Older Adults: Find a summary about elder abuse and links to prevention and reporting resources on MedlinePlus.
  • Multilingual Resources: Resources in document, video, and audio format, in multiple languages, are available on HealthReach under the topic of domestic violence.
