The New Self Care

Healing Scars that are Unseen

Some scars are not visible. In fact, some of the worst scars are those that people never see. I met Natalie Perez, co-founder of SheTV Media in the spring of 2018. As a talented filmmaker with a vision for storytelling through a lens of consistency and empathy, she has since created a company called SheTV Media with her co-founder Meredith Yinger. Their latest project, Scars Unseen, is evidence of their mission as filmmakers to create media that changes lives.

The staggering statistics on domestic violence prove the importance of understanding it’s terrible impact:

  • More than 1 in 3 women (35.6%) and more than 1 in 4 men (28.5%) in the U.S. report having experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime.(source)
  • Nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this adds up to more than 10 million women and men. (source)
  • Nearly 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men have experienced severe physical violence by an intimate partner during their lifetime. (source)

Scars Unseen aims to illuminate the power of healing, destigmatize victimhood, and encourage open communication about the causes, treatment, and prevention of domestic abuse. Domestic abuse doesn’t have to be our reality. Join us in discovering how to disrupt the cycle of abuse.

In each episode of the six-part series, one of our subjects will recount their experience involving domestic violence, focusing on what it took for them to overcome. Whether they were formerly abused or if they formerly abused another person, we will dive deep into who or what allowed them to see a better life for themselves.

Understanding that domestic violence is cyclical in nature, this documentary will also focus on the untold side of the story--life after abuse.

    People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
