APRIL 2021- Mental and Physical abuse in BAME community– Causes and Cure.

The pandemic has shone a light on the increasing numbers of physical and mental abuse that are present. Although physical and mental abuse is a prominent issue within many communities, it is prevailing issue that has an impact on ethnic minority women, with less focus and research being done to see how to help women from these specific minority groups.
