Are the voices of male domestic abuse victims heard?

Domestic abuse has increasingly become a public health concern due to the emotional, physical and financial stress it causes. Even though the demand for support services is growing yearly, statistics are not a true representation of the extent of the issue. Many victims may not report their abuse due to stigma and male victims in particular struggle with society’s expectation of being ‘robust alpha males’.
