Domestic violence harms men
Help is available for all men involved in domestic violence - whether they're dishing it out or on the receiving end.
Based on the Men's Health Forum's Domestic Violence man manual, new content on the organisation's website provides information for both perpetrators and those on the receiving end including useful address and contacts.
The message is simple: if you're violent at home, it is possible to stop and you can get help from people who won't judge you. And if you're receiving physical or mental abuse at home, you're not alone. It does happen to men and you don't have to put up with it.
It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.
Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.
Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
