"Coercive control is a form of domestic abuse - Dont suffer in silence - #domesticabuse #coercivecontrol https://hdtk.co/eTPE0"
— Wesley Fixers and 65 other supporters
"My name's Astrid. People think that abuse is just physical but it's not. With this video I aim to show that abuse can come in many different forms such as psychological and sexual. Even though I am female, and this is my story, abuse can happen to anyone at any age. The psychological effects that this relationship had on me were long standing. It has taken me over a year to get to this point and sharing my story is part of my recovery. I want to try and help as many people in similar situations see that they are not alone and that being treated like this is not ok!"
