StrongHearts Native Helpline Offers Safety Planning Tips on Social Media

 

March 30, 2020

(EAGAN, Minn., March 28, 2020) - Domestic violence victims/survivors are more isolated than ever and feel trapped with their abusers. StrongHearts Native Helpline understands that victims may not have a safe opportunity to call a helpline; therefore, in order to reach and help as many people as possible, they are re-focusing their social media strategy. They will be focusing their efforts to share culturally-specific safety planning tips, self-care and encouragement. Their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages will continue to offer regular tips on how friends and family members of those living in domestic violence situations can help. At this time, the StrongHearts website and social media sites are not equipped for support services.

StrongHearts is also a resource for service providers and can help them problem-solve during the pandemic.

The National Domestic Violence Hotline, a non-Native Hotline, offers online chat services which some victims/survivors may find easier to access during self-isolation.

StrongHearts Native Helpline (1-844-7NATIVE) will continue to operate and offer services daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Central Daylight Time. Advocates are standing by and ready to listen.
