Health Care Providers

We work each day to educate our community on the ways that interpersonal violence impacts us all.

Making a Referral

When you can connect to a local program it makes all the difference. To offer your patient a referral to BPA, you can say: “If you are comfortable with this idea, I would like to call an advocate at Battered Persons’ Advocacy. They an experts in what to do next and  can talk with you about a plan to be safer.”

Offer to help her make the call or encourage the patient to call BPA directly:

  1. Call the 24/7  BPA Crisis Line (541-673-7867) and identify that you are a healthcare provider (or a patient).
  2. Provide the client a business card or safety card with BPA’s 24-hour Crisis Line number.

I greatly appreciated the help and understanding I received. BPA made me feel like I’m still a person and that there is a light at the end of my dark tunnel. – BPA Client
