Grady Nia Domestic Violence Program

The Grady Nia Domestic Violence Program is an intervention/research project for African American women who have experienced domestic violence. The project is offered through Grady Health System and the Emory Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.

Domestic violence can involve hitting or punching, but also includes sexual, psychological or emotional abuse as well.  It is a way that one person asserts power and control over another person.  You may be a survivor even if you have no physical injuries.

In our research, we have found that many women who experience violence in their relationships often find themselves feeling overwhelmed, depressed, hopeless and faced with thoughts of suicide.

The Grady Nia Domestic Violence Program is designed to help prevent and reduce the amount of violence that women face in their relationships. It also helps reduce suicidal ideation in abused women, by helping them feel more positive about themselves, more able to cope with stresses in their lives, and more connected to other people and their community.

IF YOU ANSWERED YES TO ANY OF THE QUESTIONS ABOVE ABOUT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, THE GRADY NIA DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PROGRAM MAY BE ABLE TO OFFER YOU SUPPORT, INFORMATION, GUIDANCE, AND RESOURCES.
