Domestic violence affects millions of women across Canada. It leaves a lasting scar on women’s mental health and can significantly hinder their careers. The “Narrowing the Gender Gap” (NGG) program, offered by StratHR Solutions Inc., recognizes the critical importance of addressing this issue and empowering survivors to rebuild their lives.
The Unseen Battle: Domestic Violence’s Impact on Mental Health
Domestic violence is not just about physical abuse; it’s an assault on a survivor’s mental well-being. The constant fear, humiliation, and trauma can lead to severe mental health issues like anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Survivors often carry the weight of this trauma long after escaping their abusers.
Career Consequences: How Mental Health Affects Work
The impact of domestic violence extends far beyond the home, seeping into every aspect of a survivor’s life, including their career. Mental health challenges can manifest at work as difficulty concentrating, low self-esteem, and increased absenteeism. Survivors may struggle to maintain their job performance, leading to missed promotions and opportunities.
