Raising Awareness of Male Domestic Violence - Mankind

When we talk about violence in the home, we often assume that the male in the household is the perpetrator and the female is the victim. However, it's important to recognise that domestic violence can happen to men too, and they are often far less likely to seek help.


The Mankind Initiative is a UK-based organisation that aims to raise awareness of female-to-male domestic violence and help men get out of abusive relationships. Founded in 2001, Mankind was the first organisation of its kind in the UK and has been advocating for men's rights ever since.


Unfortunately, many men are reluctant to come forward and seek help when they are victims of domestic violence. There are many reasons for this, including the stigma surrounding male victims of abuse and the fear of not being taken seriously by authorities. Additionally, many men may feel ashamed or embarrassed to admit that they are being abused by their female partners.


Mankind works to combat these attitudes and provide a safe space for men to seek help and support. They offer a range of services, including a confidential helpline, online chat support, and a network of support groups across the UK.


It's important to recognise that domestic violence can happen to anyone, regardless of gender. By raising awareness of female-to-male domestic violence and supporting organisations like Mankind, we can help break down the stigma surrounding male victims of abuse and ensure that all victims have access to the resources they need to get help and break free from abusive relationships.


If you or someone you know is a male victim of domestic violence, please reach out to Mankind for help and support. You can visit their website at www.mankind.org.uk to learn more about their services and how they can help.
