Domestic violence: How to get help

New York City First Lady Chirlane McCray announced an expanded initiative to help domestic violence victims. It is a major effort to fight the problem.

The city has launched a web-based portal to complement the We Understand campaign, which will run through the first week of April.

Survivors of domestic violence and abuse helped put together the campaign. The city hopes their stories will inspire others to seek help. Domestic violence survivors have unique mental health needs.
