My Say:
Domestic abuse

Domestic abuse – it’s not your fault.

Domestic abuse is when a person hurts, bullies or takes away the choices of someone they have a close relationship with. Scottish Women’s Aid have lots of good advice for young people about domestic abuse if this is happening to you or someone you know:

You may feel scared, angry, upset, depressed, guilty or confused. Whatever you feel is OK. There are no right or wrong feelings. Domestic abuse is not your fault. The person who abuses is responsible – not you or anyone else.’

Check out this film in which young people who’ve been through it explain why talking about domestic abuse can help.
