LGBTQ+ people face higher rates of intimate partner violence, anti-LGBTQ+ violence, and sexual violence. Prejudice and fear of being outed can make it difficult to call the police, seek medical care, or talk with a social worker.
A program of Equitas Health, The Buckeye Region Anti-Violence Association (BRAVO) offers trusted and private support at no cost.
BRAVO will link you with people and programs that:
• Respect you as a person.
• Honor your limits.
• Put your safety first.
Your terms. Our support.
If you or someone you know is experiencing violence, call BRAVO at (866) 862-7286, text (614) 333-1907, or chat live at BRAVO-Ohio.org.
