Adult and child victims of violent crime and child witnesses of violent crime can receive psychological and medical help with the assistance of your local state attorney generals office.

Often they will assist with medical or psychological costs not covered by insurance up to certain maximums, though in Florida in recent years these funds seem limited to particular providers or groups. 
Filing of a formal police report and additional paperwork is necessary before expenses can be covered.

Local shelters are also often available to assist women who have been battered. Look in the phone book or simply call your local law enforcement agency for help.

If you are in immediate danger Call 911. 

It may be a good idea to practice calling 911 in the dark with the phone disconnected or your cell phone battery out.  Being able to dial 911 under stress or when you cannot see can save your life. 

REMEMBER - WHEN PRACTICING DISCONNECT YOUR PHONE OR TAKE THE CELL PHONE BATTERY OUT SO YOU DONT MAKE A FALSE OR UNECESSARY 911 CALL.
