Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Released: November 7, 2023 at 1:48 p.m.

November is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It is not a private family matter. It occurs in all socio-economic, ethnic and cultural groups. Domestic violence/partner violence includes violence, threats of violence, or other acts of a criminal nature including elements of emotional and psychological violence committed against a person by that person’s spouse, common-law spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend or other intimate partner, past or present.

You are not alone. Ask for help, and tell a friend or family member you trust, talk to the police or a counsellor. Asking for help can be the first step in ending the cycle of violence.

More information on Domestic Violence, including supports for victims can be found on the Winnipeg Police Service Website.
