Domestic violence is something that affects both men and women. The biggest hurdle with helping victims, as well as eradicating this problem from our society is many instances of domestic violence that go unreported. This could occur due to various reasons which may include fear, embarrassment or low self-esteem.
Domestic Violence does not necessarily have to involve physical abuse. There are other signs of domestic violence that are generally overlooked. Domestic Violence is not acceptable and the victim should always take prompt action to settle the matter as soon as possible. The following steps can be taken:
- Call the Police on triple zero (000);
- Seek assistance from a friend or family member; or
- Talk to a legal representative.
