HELP for “When mother hurts father” – UK style
In NZ, the debate about domestic violence hasn’t got past the “90% of domestic violence victims are women, so provide support services only for the women”. (The values are wrong AND the statistics are wrong!)
In NZ, 90% of serious assault victims and murder victims are male.
In UK, there are working helpline services which do offer support, counselling and assistance to men!
If there is a need, buy a telephone card, remember the time zone difference, practice your accent and make a call.
There is help available, even for NZ men.
Alternatively, remember that one of the best ways to save yourself, is to give a little bit of help to others, who are momentarily in a harder situation than yourself. There is a real need for support givers in NZ. Add a bit of your energy to these support givers.
