Women's Refuge study shows link between domestic abuse, suicide

From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 10 September 2018

A Women's Refuge study has found a strong link between domestic abuse and suicide. More than 1200 women responded to the survey, and all reported they had considered or attempted to take their own lives. Women's Refuge head Ang Jury talks to Susie Ferguson. "The number of responses surprised us. We would've been thinking half of that was going to give us a reasonable sample. It tells us we all need to pay a lot more attention to what's going on for women after they reach out," Ang Jury says.
