bwss cover gptips"On World Health Day, April 7, 2018, Battered Women’s Support Services launched the #SomeMenBreakMoreThanHearts initiative, designed to raise awareness of violence against women in intimate relationships, and provide resources to family physicians throughout B.C.

The campaign includes an information and resource kit for general practitioners throughout B.C.. It’s designed to help practitioners better identify and respond to women who may be experiencing violence in an intimate relationship; and offer resources that are available to support women, including immediate safe places to go, crisis support, and ongoing counselling.

The medical community plays a key role in early detection, intervention, provision of specialized treatment and effective referral of survivors of violence in intimate relationships helping alleviate the physical, sexual and emotional consequences."
