Motivation: Winning The Battle In Your Head
'Years' before domestic abuse help. PICTURE POSED BY MODEL File photo dated 08/11/07 of a woman with her head in her hands as victims of domestic violence suffer on average for nearly three years before getting the help they need, according to new charity research. Issue date: Wednesday February 25, 2015. A study by domestic abuse charity SafeLives - formerly known as Co-ordinated Action Against Domestic Abuse - found that within a three-year period some women will suffer more than 50 incidents of violence. More than 85% of victims are in contact with professionals - on average five times - in the year before they get help, the research found, and almost a quarter of victims at high risk of harm go to an accident and emergency department because of their injuries - some as many as 15 times. SafeLives has urged professionals such as GPs, midwives, social workers, police and A&E staff to ask about domestic abuse every time they are concerned in order to get families help sooner. Also in the last year before they get effective help, three-quarters of victims reported the abuse to the police. See PA story POLITICS Domestic.
