Women who experience intimate partner violence are more likely to suffer from mental health issues. It is common for women to become secluded and to not want to socialise anymore as they feel they are under the control of their partner. They fear any form of contact with others in case it comes out that they are being abused, which would then lead to even more abuse and can even result in death.
Social support systems have been clinically proven to be vital in fostering resilience amongst abused women and includes social connectedness, social networking and supportive communities.
