Sexual and Intimate Partner Violence are a public health crisis across the United States. In Vermont alone, nearly 7% of the population experiences sexual and/or domestic violence annually. Despite these numbers, less than 20% of those affected seek assistance. Increased access to education materials regarding these topics will serve to increase dialogue with at risk patients who might otherwise refrain from discussions on home or social environment. By increasing discourse and education, we hope to more frequently identify and assist patients who are experiencing violence in their relationships as well as prevent the formation of unhealthy relationships at the level of adolescence.
