Domestic violence contributes to poor health for many survivors. For example, chronic conditions like heart disease or gastrointestinal disorders can become more serious due to domestic violence.

Every year, more than 3 million children witness domestic violence in their homes.

I just wanted 
you to listen

Just tell them you tripped and hit a corner.

While people at all income levels experience domestic violence, those earning lower incomes experience domestic violence at higher rates than those with higher household incomes.

Domestic violence costs more than $37 billion a year in law enforcement involvement, legal work, medical and mental health treatment, and lost productivity at companies.

No one will ever love you like I love you.

Yes, there is a strong connection between mental health and domestic violence. Mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse, can increase the risk of becoming a victim or perpetrator of domestic violence.

In some cases, individuals with mental health problems may act out in violent or abusive ways towards their partners or family members. This can occur as a result of poor coping skills, difficulty regulating emotions, or an impaired ability to control impulsive behavior.

On the other hand, being a victim of domestic violence can also have a negative impact on an individual's mental health. Domestic violence can cause or worsen symptoms of depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and can lead to a range of physical and mental health problems.

It's important to note that domestic violence is not caused by mental illness, and not all individuals with mental health problems are abusive. However, addressing and treating both mental health problems and domestic violence is crucial for the well-being and safety of all those involved. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, it's important to seek help from a trusted friend, family member, or professional.
