Identifying Persons at Risk for Abuse

SHS personnel are often in a position to observe and/or be told of abusive situations. When said personnel are not sure what they are seeing/hearing, they can refer to SHS professional personnel, most specially the Turning Point Mental Health Program. Speciality examinations (vaginal bruising; malnutrition) and related screening for abuse-related issues are also available in the SHS Clinic by trained professionals.
