The recently updated General Health safety card features 10 panels, 5 panels each side, and folds up to the size of a business card (3.5" x 2") for discretion. Designed for women receiving health care services, the card helps women recognize how their relationship impacts their health and the lives of their children, in addition to providing information on safety planning and hotlines for support. This tool identifies specific health problems that may be associated with chronic stress from an abusive relationship and offers women guidance on how to talk to their children or a trusted friend about their experience.
The General Health (Is Your Relationship Affecting Your Health?) card was expanded in 2017 to include new content on healing from past trauma, while prompting women to reflect on how difficult experiences can shape a person’s life. This evidence-based tool was developed to help clinicians and domestic violence/sexual assault advocates provide universal education – to frame conversations. In 2019 the Futures Without Violence worked with the Los Angeles Office of Women's Health to adapt the safety card to Korean, and has been modified by FUTURES for a national audience. This card was reviewed by multiple native speakers and DV advocates.
