Domestic Violence & Abuse Study
Since the UK national lockdown, there has been a drastic increase in the calls and visits to helplines, as well as the reports of cases of DVA. The inability to escape abusers has left victims trapped by law, often exacerbating pre-existing poor mental health conditions (e.g., depression, anxiety) and psychosomatic distress reactions (e.g., insomnia, OCD).The lockdown meant that physicians are seeing a fraction of their usual patients, and often offer remote consultations, which is a clear barrier to identifying victims of DVA.
This E-Survey based study primarily aims to investigate the prevalence of DVA. Completing the brief survey can help raise awareness about DVA in the community including how to recognise signs of the various types of DVA in both children and adults. Raising awareness about DVA in the community not only helps survivors of DVA to openly discuss and encourage receiving support, but also helps victims to recognise and acknowledge the abuse they are experiencing.
