Domestic Violence leads to mental health issues

The trauma of abuse can lead victims into a dangerous spiral of mental depression, says Help of Door County Executive Director Milly Gonzales.  Struggles with mental health issues after someone has experienced abuse may require counseling or therapy to deal with the problem.  Gonzales says people who experience domestic violence can suffer many ill-effects that may not be visible.



May is National Mental Health Awareness Month.  Help of Door County’s mission is to eliminate domestic abuse through prevention and intervention services, and to advocate for social change.  You can find more information on support offered by Help of Door County by calling 920-743-8818 or going to
