Words Matter – Interpersonal Violence

CIPHER created the Words Matter campaign to share and promote a collective understanding of many well-known and used mental health terms that describe various occupationally related challenges many public safety personnel (PSP), healthcare workers (HCWs), veterans, and their families face every day. Interpersonal violence is harmful physical or psychological behavior from one person or group towards another. It can be a traumatic event, affecting the mental health of both the victim and the perpetrator. Examples include intimate partner violence, elder abuse, and workplace violence.
