Domestic abuse can significantly affect the physical, mental and emotional well-being of victims and it is therefore important to act upon it as soon as possible. Suicide is one of the effects of domestic violence. Suicide is the act of purposely ending one’s life and figures from the Lincolnshire Domestic Abuse Newsletter, September 2015 highlight the alarming suicide rates.

The global suicide rate is 16 per 100,000 populations, on average; one person dies committing suicide every forty seconds somewhere in the world. That is 800,000 every year according to the World Health Organisation. According to Women’s Aid, a third of all female suicides can be attributed to current or past experiences of domestic abuse, half of all suicides amongst black and minority ethnic women can be attributed to current or past experiences of domestic abuse, three women every week commit suicide as a result of being in an abusive relationship. Statistics from the Crime Survey England and Wales suggest that nearly 1,000 people living in Lincolnshire may try to take their own life every year following a recent incident of domestic abuse.

At Ringrose Law we have a dedicated team of Solicitors who are able and willing to assist victims of domestic abuse to take protective action.
