In the last few months, we have heard about cases of domestic violence, abuse and harassment increasing during the COVID-19 lockdowns around the globe. Women and children who are isolated at home with their abusers are particularly vulnerable to gender-based violence. Enquiries to Women’s Aid Organisation (WAO) domestic violence telephone and messaging services increased 3.4 times in May compared to pre-MCO levels. To find out more about the impact of domestic violence on mental health, particularly those in lower-income communities, we speak to Dr Leoniek Kroneman, Clinical Consultant, and Fenella Ting, Counseling Psychologist and Program Manager, from SOLS Health.
