Week 10 Notes: Mental Health and Addictions, Violence and Abuse

This week based its learning off of resources available in my community. You should research your community and see what kinds of shelters there are out there for victims of abusive. If you suspect abuse while in the role of a nurse, what will you do? What actions can you take that won’t place the victim in increased danger?

People are at the greatest risk 2 months after they have left an abusive relationship.
