Amen Services Annual Report & International Men’s Day

Play

John speaks to AOIFE MCGRATH from Amen Services about the Annual Report and International Men’s Day.

She talks about the services that Amen Services provide for men who suffer from domestic abuse, the families that would be contacting them over their concerns, the reaction they got from their last campaign, the amount of services they provide outside of the confidential helpline and the reasons why men would be reluctant to admit their domestic abuse.

She also talks about cyber abuse suffered by men and the ratio of men that would report their abuse to the Gardai compared to women.
