Domestic Abuse & Mental Health

dreamstime_m_1376745older-womanAt Inverness Women’s Aid we do understand that some women experiencing domestic abuse will have mental health problems. The problems might be caused directly by the domestic abuse situation or exacerbated by it.

As well as supporting you in relation to your domestic abuse situation, our staff will be able to assist you to access help from appropriate services and professional agencies and support you to engage in the therapeutic process, should you so wish.

Working on the person-centered basis means that we aim to facilitate women having the ability to regain control of her and her children’s lives rather than telling her what to do. So please do not hesitate to call us if you find your situation too difficult to cope on your own. You are not alone – we are there to help.
