NO MORE provides a quick and easy way for victims to reach out for help if they are experiencing domestic and gender-based violence.

UNITED STATES – Domestic violence and child abuse invariably has a major effect on the general health and wellbeing of victims. The traumatic effects of domestic violence could manifest in various forms such as physical injury, anxiety, depression, etc. Victims of domestic violence may feel isolated, depressed, suicidal, humiliated, worthless, lack confidence, degraded and in fear for their lives. Moreover, it also impairs social skills and increases the possibility that the victims will participate in practices harmful to their health, like self-harm or substance abuse.

According to a recent study, in one year, there were more than 650,000 children determined to be victims of abuse. The number of child fatalities due to child abuse and neglect has increased over the years. Nationally, an estimated 1800 children die from abuse and neglect every year.

Domestic violence has similar heart wrenching figures. More than 10 million women and men are victims of domestic violence annually. In the US, it is estimated that at least 20 people per minute are victims of physical violence by an intimate partner.

 

The impact of domestic violence and child abuse is not limited to the victim only, rather it has a ripple effect throughout the community. It impacts the availability of healthcare resources and use of tax dollars. It also results in increase in crime rate, reduction in productivity at work, and in general has negative impact on the local economy. Children who live in such an environment often grow up to become abusers or victims themselves or end up with mental scars that disturbs them throughout their life.

Everyone deserves to live a safe and dignified life. Children need a caring and loving atmosphere for a healthy growth. In a progressive society, there is no place for domestic and gender-based violence.

In order to prevent domestic violence and abusive behaviour, a concerted effort needs to be made both at the community level and at administrative level. The launch of nationwide fast dial hotline #919 is one such initiative that will create a strong and responsive support system for victims, and will go a long way in deterring potential abusers from indulging in domestic violence.

“The #919 number is a uniformed national Domestic Violence Fast Dial number that works in all areas and territories (among all carrier networks as well),” says a spokesperson at NO MORE. “By using our geolocation technology, once an individual calls the #919 number, the caller will be connected to the nearest organization and resource within the county ZIP code.”

If an individual, victim, or survivor needs help in any situation, #919 fast dial number would be easy to memorize, quick to dial, discreet, and provide immediate assistance and resources. By dialling the #919 number, people will have a streamlined process to connect to available resources in their immediate area.

The NO MORE #919 service is being supported by Saitamatoken.com (Powered by Saitama).
