Domestic abuse is any abuse that happens in a family or personal relationship. Experiencing abuse within a close relationship can be very traumatising, and there can be range of responses and impacts on mental health, emotional wellbeing, as well as physical health. It can be very difficult for some people to come forward and seek help, but there is a lot of information, advice and guidance available, which might help some people feel more able to speak out and seek help.
It is never your fault, and you are not alone.
