The DAHMW is a nonprofit organization that helps men and women who are being abused by their spouses, boyfriends and girlfriends. Their mission is to provide crisis intervention and support services to those who are abused and to help find a way to stop domestic violence from happening in the first place.
First founded in 2000, it offers help to heterosexual as well as same-sex victims, because violence knows no boundaries and is not a respecter of person, race, nationality or creed. Their main specialization is to men who are abused by their women counterparts, however; as mentioned, no one is turned away from respect and support.
There is also a mailing list and a toll-free domestic violence hotline. If you are being abused, please be sure to cover your tracks and call today! Don’t hide in shame!
On April 7, 1998, Kristin Brooks committed suicide. It was a horrible tragedy for those who knew and loved her. What could be done, wondered her husband Reese Butler, to help those who were still alive and hurting like Kristin was that horrible April day?
The 1-800-SUICIDE phone number is just one of the many causes that were created because of Reese’s and the Center’s help and Kristin’s tragic end. There is also an online crisis chat, college campus awareness events of suicide and its’ effects on not just the person committing the acts but their family and friends; and also music therapies. They are also located on Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.
You can volunteer to help, or you can call to get help. Either way, it’s a win-win situation.
1 in 6 men have experienced sexually abusive issues by the age of 18. Why does this have to happen? This website (and yours truly) thinks that this number is probably a low estimate, considering many people do not report their sexual abuse issues. If you are that 1 in 6, or that 2 in 6, or whatever–remember, and keep this in mind–you are not alone. This site, and many others will help you remember this and keep supporting you along the way.
There is Online Counseling, Support and Therapy for you, if needed, as well as newsletters, jobs, internships and volunteers. You do not have to suffer alone. You are not 1 against the world–you are 1 with others, who need each other. Don’t be alone anymore.
The North Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (NCDJJDP) has created a website to help stop school violence. Finding out positive ways to deal with youth development for ALL youths can help curb some of the horrible violence that happens now. Education is the best knowledge–the best way to help children understand that violence IS NOT the answer to issues in school.
The NCDJJDP has an alternative learning resource page with information about alternative learning, webcasts and resources about wanting to end the violence in schools, and a cafeteria page, dealing with nutrition and healthy eating.
There is a “question of the month” each month in the library which is very interesting to check out, and a parents resources and principals’ office.
The idea behind this website is that if every child can get a good, overall, balanced healthy school meal and school day while being treated fairly and responsibly, perhaps our days of school violence could be put behind us. Wishful thinking perhaps, but one less school violence issue is well worth it, psychologically-wise as well as socially-wise.
