Healthy social connections and relationships are essential components of overall optimal health. Interpersonal Violence (IPV) threatens not only social and relational health, but physical health as well. COVID-19 has brought many unique challenges for victims of IPV, such as staying at home more with abusers and restricted access to resources. An estimated 47% of NC women have experienced IPV. The NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence reports that most clients are between 25 and 59 years old and they are experiencing more severe and urgent needs. Here are some resource recommendations to promote healthy social connections and relationships.
