Seeing someone you know or love experience domestic violence can be scary, and starting the conversation can be difficult as well. Men or women going through a difficult time may not want to discuss the abuse they’re experiencing for any number of reasons, including fear, shame, or even concern for their partner who has abusive behavior. Quinsigamond Community College is committed to providing victims and survivors of domestic violence confidential resources right here on campus.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, which often occurs in a relationship with an intimate partner. It can be difficult to spot. Many young people who are going through unhealthy or abusive situations in relationships may describe the situation as “drama.” They may even believe it's drama, but the facts are it could be much more than that.
