Art for a cause
Growing up, I saw those whom I loved the most suffering because of domestic abuse. When I was a child; I felt helpless and I swore that one day, I would be helping women, in any possible way. I pledge to work towards ending the stigma on mental health and gender based violence.
That is why I am personally donating 10% of painting sales to Woman's Trust and bring awareness to the cause.
Woman's Trust supports women affected by domestic abuse by providing counselling and support groups. Domestic abuse affects 1 in 4 women in the UK, it is the biggest single cause of female depression and mental health problems. Help us make a difference and change women's lives.
Low self-esteem and the erosion of self-worth are two mental health side effects of domestic abuse.
Whether your relationship is physically violent or emotionally and psychologically abusive, the effect is often the same.
Women who don't receive the proper mental health care they need often turn to drugs, alcohol, and self-harm to try and manage their anxiety or feelings of low self-worth.
And it's these very issues that Woman's Trust was set up to address. To help women to process and recover from the psychological trauma caused by domestic abuse. - Woman's Trust
