One-third of Americans take dietary supplements, according to estimates from the
National Instutites of Health, hoping to improve memory, lose weight or avoid catching
that cold that’s going around the office.

But do these supplements work, or are they doing more harm than good?

Dietary supplements were part of a $37 billion industry in 2014,
according to the National Institutes of Health, and there are a lot of
choices out there.

SOMEONE WHO IS A
VICTIM OF INTIMATE
PARTNER VIOLENCE

823209 1-29-17 By: Robin King, Community Impact intern, United Way of the Greater Chippewa Valley
(Information obtained from the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence)
822624 1-29-16
Did you know ...

• Every 9 seconds in the U.S. a woman is assaulted or
beaten.

• On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically
abused by an intimate partner in the U.S.

• 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men in the U.S. have been raped
in their lifetime.

• 1 in 15 children are exposed to intimate partner violence
each year and 90% of these children are eyewitnesses to
this violence.

Why Do People Abuse?
Abuse stems from a desire to gain and maintain power and control over an
intimate partner. Abusers believe they have the right to control their partners.
They typically believe that their own feelings and needs should be the priority
in their relationships. Abuse is a learned behavior. People learn abuse through
witnessing it in their own families, from friends, or from their culture.

9 tips on how you can help a friend or family
member who is in an abusive relationship:

1. Don’t judge—listen.
2. Avoid telling the victim to leave the relationship. He/She already knows

they need to leave, but they do not feel they can.
3. Help the victim develop a safety plan. If it is safe for you to do so, let the

victim store some emergency items at your house in case she/he needs to
leave quickly.
4. Document all dates and times you see injuries on the victim even if they tell
you the injuries were not caused by the abuser, and take pictures if you can.
5. Tell the victim about Bolton Refuge House in Eau Claire or Family Support
Center in Chippewa Falls and give him/her the phone number. The victim
could also call the National Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-799-7233).
6. If the victim is going to leave the abuser, tell him/her not to disclose their
location to anyone. Offer a safe place for the victim or help him/her find
one.
7. Pick a code word so when the victim says or texts the chosen word, you will
know to call the police.
8. If the victim is suicidal, he/she needs help. Ideally without letting the
abuser know.
9. Let the victim know that they are not alone and that this is not their fault.
Express your fear for their safety, as well as the children’s, and that the
abuse will likely continue and get worse, even if the abuser apologizes.
