Domestic violence, including physical, sexual or emotional abuse, affects millions of women each year. This abuse can result in not only physical injuries, but emotional problems as well. These problems can include but are not limited to:

  • Frequent Memories of the Violence and Abuse
  • Trouble Concentrating
  • Being Jumpy or Irritable
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

These reactions are normal but sometimes these feelings get in our way. We would like to help you move past these negative emotional responses to domestic violence and abuse.

The Athena Clinic offers free evaluation and treatment services for women who are experiencing emotional difficulties following relationship violence.


Evaluations are free and confidential. If you request, the results of your evaluation may be given to your doctor or lawyer.


The evaluation takes 2-3 appointments at the University of Memphis campus. You will be asked to talk about the abuse and your current feelings.


You may qualify for treatment at our clinic. If treatment is not the best choice for you, we will provide you with referrals for other kinds of treatment or support.
