Because Feelings Matter #7: “You Are Not Alone” (Surviving An Abusive Relationship)

Every mental health struggle has a story behind it. ‘Because Feelings Matter’ is a series that brings you the stories of people and their mental health issues. These stories aim to normalise conversations about mental health, and to show that it’s okay to struggle emotionally and psychologically, but more importantly, to reach out for help. In conjunction with International Women’s Day in March, this episode shines a spotlight on the hidden trauma of violence against women. Jan (not her real name) shares her account of being in an abusive relationship.
