The signs of domestic violence are a key signal for people to speak out, according to Help of Door County Executive Director Milly Gonzales. Reportedly one in four women and one in seven men have been the victim of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. Gonzales says if you see something, say something.
Non-physical signs of abuse can include isolation and a change of behavior by a loved one. Help of Door County provides a 24-hour, confidential helpline for anyone with concerns or questions. You can find the contact information below.
