Survivor Support Services | Equitas Health

We start by listening. Your trust is our first concern.

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
