Alcohol contributes to a third of homicide cases in New Zealand. This stat factors into both drink-driving and domestic violence cases, some cases may even have been preventable if a friend, family member or colleague spoke up about the alcohol abuse beforehand.

Comment on Facebook Alcohol contributes ...

Change MUST begin from childhood-with the aim of developing mature responsible ADULTS-NOT dependent on chemicals(yes booze IS a chemical) to make them feel adequate/normal

That is very sad. Slightly off topic but when it is glass recycling day & I am walking past all the bins filled to the brim, I fell sadness that all that money spent on bottles that previously contained Alcohol. Money spent on Alcohol is money that is not being put towards other basic needs (of some families & individuals) e.g. food on the table, heating, safer cars, doctors bills, house upgrades or savings for a deposit of a home. Alcohol (& drugs) can take away so much from some house holds & yes in some cases, as you have described it takes lives.

All cars should be fitted with blowing apparatus!!!!!!

The person with the drinking problem will have alot of control over the victim in domestic violence, often family and friend reach out to the victims. Unless the victim has the support from family friends and society it is extremely hard to help.

Every single time I drank I drunk to get completely blotto , alcohol was not my drug of choice it was my fall back , and almost every time I hurt someone ,was arrested ,charged or imprisoned .,.. alcohol was involved in some way shape or form.....there's so much social harm caused by this legal drug , it's ingrained in our culture, whether it's the carnage on the streets of every town most Friday and Saturday nights, behind closed doors or hidden away in plain sight , it contributes massively to assaults, sexual assaults, domestic abuse , homelessness, ........etc ....I don't drink alcohol because I don't like what I become , I'm in recovery and have dealt with many of the driving issues behind my addiction and behaviour ....some folks have no probs with alcohol that's fine I'm not one of them and you don't have to look far in any direction in Aotearoa New Zealand to see the massive problem we have with it here .....awesome post guys ...like and share from me 🤗❤️🙂

NZ is behind the rest of the world for those caught DIC. Why isn't there mandatory rehabilitation on the first offence?

How do you respond when your friends or family are showing signs of depression? There are verbal, behavioural and situational danger signs that indicate a depressed person may be suicidal. An example of a behavioural danger sign might be showing a sudden interest in dark themes, drawing pictures involving death, listening to music with death themes or taking an interest in people who have taken their own life. If you would like to talk to someone about depression visit our website and directory. pmgt.org.nz/directory/?highlight=depression%20disorder.

Have you experienced or witnessed male domestic violence? What actions did you take? Men sometimes feel as if they can’t talk about it when it happens and they can feel helpless to do anything because it might not be believed. However, an increasing number of New Zealand males - some represented by an increasingly vocal network of men’s groups, are recognising this issue within their lives. Abuse within any relationship is often controlling. It may cause physical, sexual or psychological damage or cause victims to live in continual fear.

Awesome to see this , another often "hidden" issue affecting more men in Aotearoa New Zealand than a lot of people would imagine and another issue that needs addressing , dialogue and support ....it's definitely got my support 💯....🤗❤️🙂

I always get assaulted it is why I help the disabled Sisters at New Zealands Original Cathedral I've done that my whole life and is why I only do wilful damage because there is very little the New Zealand Police can do except lie just like how the Sergeant Neil Hilton from the Auckland City District Police lied about me in the Auckland District Court I would rather be a virgin and help the disabled Sisters

Great to see this NZ Police

I just didn't say anything.

1 in 3 IPV homicide victims are men, and most years in NZ around half of the victims in all family violence homicides are men and boys.

Maybe start wearing black ribbons and not just white ribbons, it's not just men being the abusers

Yes did the police help at all No!!!!!

A shocking recent homicide report shows that 50% of female homicide victims in New Zealand are killed by a partner or ex-partner. In many cases, the victim is too scared to speak out, fearing more violence. In most cases, someone else knows it’s happening and does nothing to stop it because they don’t want to get involved or they don’t want to be seen to be interfering.This is why it is so important to identify and report violent incidents within families, speak up and save lives New Zealand!

Comment on Facebook A shocking recent ...

It is never to late to help save a life .... If you wait you may regret your decision. Please always ask "are you OK" or "report" anything that you think is not right. Better to be safe than sorry.

Mental Health units/Community Clinics and emergency teams etc should be able to give advice and counselling- GP 's will be able to assist with information re refuge premises.

And still no such thing as mens refuge. I guess they'll just have to protect themselves from abuse. Then go to prison for protecting themselves from abuse, while some comedian says speak up before its too late.

Your first concern should always be for your & your children's Safety. Everyone is justified using Self-defence for herself or another survivor, that she believes reasonable in the circumstances - If you are being attacked, You do what you believe you need to do to in the circumstances to survive.

If we don't report abuse, we are part of the problem

People are dangerous it is why I wrote to idols like Avril Lavigne, Rebecca Breeds, Ruby Rubes Buckton & Gin Wigmore asking them if they can help

It's still too late though. The Justice System, the Government, the Police, Battered Women's Trust and so on, ALL need to work together, to combat domestic violence. It can't just be up to the police and shelters. The system fails the police, it fails the shelters, it fails social workers, it fails full stop. More often than not, you'll find that these women and others HAVE spoken up, but how many times, have they been let down? How many more times do these people need to literally come crawling for help, already broken, before SOMETHING is actually done? How many of these people are now statistics, and are/were already on file. If you want change, then the change has to start at the very top. Not at the nearly bottom. Sorry to say, but after what I've seen some of my friends go through, I wouldn't talk to anyone in authority. I have a friend who regularly gets her shoulders dislocated, her bones broken, but there is even only so much the police can do, that her social worker can do. Ultimately, the Justice System in this country, fails, over and over and over. Why should anyone believe in it???
