Domestic violence has a significant impact on women and their children’s mental health and well-being. For Asian women, we know that their particular experiences of domestic violence and abuse are greatly influenced and exacerbated by cultural dynamics, pressures and issues around honour, which not only impacts on their mental health but also on the way they disclose and seek help.This toolkit, ‘Asian Women, Domestic Violence and Mental Health’ is an invaluable resource which will assist health practitioners to recognise the links between Asian women presenting with mental health issues and their experiences of domestic violence, and thus be able to respond more.
