Personal And Family Stability


  • Many of my patients have experienced domestic violence or controlling behavior by a family member. Do you ever feel unsafe at home (I-HELP)?
  • Does your partner hit or verbally abuse you? IF YES – would you like help (WE CARE)?
  • Have you had difficulty accessing income supports or housing benefits because of birth certificate documentation or custodial status (I-HELP)?
  • Are you currently receiving child support (I-HELP)?
  • Are you concerned that a family member cannot take care of him- or herself due to illness or disability (I-HELP)?
  • Have you identified someone who will make decisions about your health care in the event that you become too ill or hurt to express your wishes (I-HELP)?
