Prevention and Public Health in Vermont
The Vermont Department of Health is committed to the prevention of domestic and sexual violence through comprehensive public health intiatives, and activities that follow Vermont’s Prevention Model.
Healthy sexuality is more than just safe sexual activity. It is a part of our overall sense of wellbeing and being connected to ourselves and others. Understanding and talking about sexuality is a prevention tool we all can use.
A bystander is someone who witnesses a situation or event, but does not take part in it. We all need to be active bystanders, which means that we step in when we see harm happening.
