One in Three Campaign

Myself and my son are family violence survivors. My daughter did not survive. But this post is about my son, who is only 7 years old and has suffered with immense anxiety since the day he was born, there doesn't go a day where he isn't anxious. He sees a psychologist every fortnight and is one of the smartest kids in his grade. Despite his anxiety he is a very happy boy that loves gaming and has a great circle of friends. We are now a stable happy family and I hope with the continued psychologist sessions he will continue to improve.

Family and domestic violence can affect absolutely anyone. Just because one statistic is lower than another doesn't mean that they should be ignored. Men deserve more than what they currently have.
