Abuse can come in a variety of forms, whether physical, sexual, or emotional. No matter what category it falls under, abuse is damaging to our internal and external well-being.

 

Being in an abusive situation can be frightening and isolating, but asking for help is the first step to ending the mistreatment. Covering topics like online bullying, homophobia, domestic abuse or sexual exploitation, the Fixers on this page are sharing their experiences to shed light on the often hidden issue of abuse.

 

By talking about subjects that many shy away from, these Fixers are raising awareness and encouraging others to put an end to abusive behaviour.
