When Heather emailed us earlier this year she was distraught. Both she and her husband were in the military overseas.
Her husband had been verbally and emotionally abusive when they lived in the USA. She gave him an ultimatum - divorce or therapy. They went to therapy and she felt he had gotten better.
But things had escalated abroad. He became even more abusive, going into rages, throwing things and pushing her. Then the threats started.
Heather didn't want to speak to the family advocacy program in the military. She read our crisis email is confidential and she needed someone to help her. Our crisis email advocate Kate was able to help Heather understand her options, access other resources outside of the military in her area and provide on-going emotional support and safety planning.
Heather hasn't told us what she has decided to do yet. But she now has the information necessary ro make an informed decision and we will be there to support Heather as she goes through this process.
We appreciate your support of this project. Being able to provide confidential support to military victims who do not want to access military resources is vital for the best outcome for their situations.
