Domestic Abuse: The Unmistakable Ties to Fatal Health Issues in Surviving Victims

The rise of domestic abuse is leading to an alarming spike in mental health problems in both men and women across the country. What’s more, numerous individuals who have experienced domestic violence struggle to find methods to cope with the trauma. Kishna J., Life Coach for Victims of Domestic Violence, discusses the repercussions that arise from surviving an abusive relationship.

“The damages caused by domestic abuse have the potential of leaving permanent scars, alter a person’s demeanor, and changing their character for the rest of their life. Seeking proper treatment completely turns a person’s life around such a distressing event and gives the individual the chance to recover and come out stronger,” Kishna added.

ART Therapy International commented that “on average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States alone, equaling approximately 10 million men and women each year”.

“If these numbers weren’t already alarming, domestic violence has the potential to unfold an unimaginable number of emotional and psychological ripple effects, including panic attacks, suicidal tendencies, substance abuse, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and depression,” Kishna stated.

“Not to mention, domestic violence can be fatal for the victim; women can be both intentionally and unintentionally murdered by their partners, losing their lives as a result from the injuries inflicted by their attacker.”

Survivors who have made the decision to leave a violent home or relationship, can find immediate help via counseling, which can help with their emotional and psychological needs, and give them the drive and power to move on.
