This clip from "Dr. Phil" features Robin McGraw, Dr. Phil's wife and founder of When Georgia Smiled. The foundation creates programs for women and children affected by domestic violence and operates the ASPIRE News App. The app is not a replacement for 911, and people should still call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-799-SAFE (7233) for help.
