Katie Ray Jones, president of the National Domestic Violence Hotline, says the number is for anyone who wants to find out if they are in an abusive relationship (or knows they are). Call 800-799-7233 to talk about anything you want. Gail Patin, Hubbard House in Jacksonville, Florida, and Susan McGee, Humboldt County, California, domestic violence authority and author of Why She Stays: A Guide for Helping the Battered Woman and Survivors of All Genders, share how to stay safe, stop making excuses for the one who is abusing, and make steps to leave once and for all. We also talk about what friends can do to provide support for the person being abused. The Florida hotline number is 800-500-1119. Susan McGee is at 707-601-6042.
