We often carry along childhood unhealed emotional wounds into our adulthood, which gravely affects our personal and cognitive development. Our horrific experiences silence our voices; rupture our self-worth, inhibit our independence as purpose-driven individuals; leave us defenceless, paralysed with fear and anxiety. With a vibrant team of lived experience leaders at B-FAPEC, we seek use our stories and help our beneficiaries to complete their recovery journey.
Many victims of abuse, especially amongst BAME communities recognises physical abuse as the only form of abuse. We often hear statements like “My partner doesn’t abuse me; he only controls my finances but doesn’t beat me..” The defiition of domestic abuse is often an eye-opener for many victims.
As lived experience leaders, we cannot underestimate the impact of domestic abuse on mental health; that is why through our 1-2-1 emotional support, we seek to provide a timely prevention to mental breakdown through and beyond Covis-19.
