January is Stalking Awareness Month

January 23, 2023

Being stalked by another human being is a frightening and traumatic experience. Stalking victims suffer higher rates of depression--anxiety-insomnia-and-relationship issues. One thing you can do is become an ally for those who are experiencing stalking. Listen to and validate their fears. Offer to help them go to local law enforcement and to seek a protection order.

Reinforce that they deserve to be in a healthy relationship where personal boundaries are respected. If you are being stalked, know that there is help. You can reach out to the advocates at your local Domestic Violence shelter or call the Ohio Domestic Violence Network at 800-934-9840
