About the event
Abuse can have a significant impact on mental wellness. It can affect your self-esteem, concentration, stress levels, ability to sleep, mood, and ability to function. In the long run, it can lead to physical and mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, chronic pain. Studies show that severe emotional abuse can be as powerful as physical abuse. Over time, both can contribute to low self-esteem and depression. You may also develop anxiety, chronic pain, guilt, insomnia, social withdrawal or loneliness. Children who have been abused may eventually deal with alcohol and substance use issues. Join us s we dive into this topic.
