A few things that catch my eye in particular speak on supporting victims and survivors and safety planning. There is so much we have had to adjust and think on our feet without any knowledge during these last few years. At least here there is some knowledge and people who can help lead us through this process. If at all possible this is an opportunity we should take advantage of.
