It was said that "Ohio suffered 131 domestic violence fatalities in the year ending June 30, 2021, a 20% increase in fatalities over the same time period last year, and a 62% increase from two years ago (ODVN,2021)." Domestic Violence is a international public health crisis that affects millions every year. Domestic Violence among males is most commonly underreported incident because of their fear of not being trusted or believed when a crisis occurs. As a community it is our job to help those who ask for it and guide those who don't know how to.
