How is your mental health?

Domestic abuse is bad for your mental health. Nearly everyone who is currently in or recovering from being in an abusive relationships will have to deal with depression, anxiety, and some survivors will develop much more serious mental health issues. Like everything in your recovery journey, how you feel right now is nothing to be ashamed of. The next step is to get help and recover safely.

If you are in immediate crisis, the best place to go is your local A&E service. They are set-up to offer you immediate support -- a mental health emergency is the same as a physical health emergency. Get help immediately.

Take a look at our longer article about supporting your own mental health.

If you’re not in an immediate crisis, talk to your GP. Anti-depressants can help get you some headspace (see the link above), and they can help signpost you to counselling. You’ll need counselling to get through what you’re going through (again, see the link above.)

If you’re out of hours and want to talk to someone immediately, the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) on 0800 585858 is a great service. Their helpline is not open 24/7, but the Samaritans helpline is open 24/7 on 116 123.

Or, you can contact us using the details at the top of the page.
