Domestic Violence is a major problem in today’s society. It occurs across all nations, genders, sexual orientations, age groups, financial situations and can happen in any social group. It has far reaching effects, on the individuals concerned, in the wider family context and on society.
If you are a victim of domestic violence or suspect that someone you know is a victim, there are many places that you can turn to for help, support, advice and refuge if necessary. Even if you are, or feel that you may become, an abuser, there is help aavailable that may be able to stop the cycles of abuse continuing.
Victims of abuse are often told to talk to a friend, family member, priest or doctor abot the problem. However, not everyone has someone that they can trust enough to turn to in their daily lives. If this applies to you, or you feel that the situation demands professional, expert help, this is what to do.
