Would you like to join us in our 2019 Nationwide Campaign to celebrate how Blooming Strong women are?  

November 25th every year marks the United Nations day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. At Standing Together Against Domestic Violence, we use this time of year to celebrate the strength of women who have survived gender based violence, or supported someone who has.

Dr. Gail Dines spoke at this great event which provided insight, information, solutions, and a passion for building a healthy generation of kids.

It's a hard time to be a child. Teens today are bombarded with difficult and ever-changing sexual messages. As a result, it has never been more challenging to parent or mentor kids into healthy adulthood.

Best practice guidance and recommendations have targeted health in terms of understanding risk and information sharing. In practice we know that doctors face significant challenges and sometimes conflicting guidance about information sharing and patient confidentiality especially as it relates to adults with capacity where children are not involved.
