Summary

Domestic violence has skyrocketed since the onset of COVID-19, as more women have needed to stay home. It is crucial that individuals know they can reach out to TELL and that there will be someone to listen, help them access shelters and develop safety plans if necessary. Studies have shown that suicide can be prevented when a person has someone who will listen to them. By supporting this project, you will help to fund the training of 60 crisis lifeline support workers over the next year.

Challenge

Prior to COVID-19, the number of women contacting domestic violence services in Japan had been on the rise for 16 consecutive years, reaching an all-time high in 2019. With people confined to their homes under the pandemic in the last few months, many more women reached out for help. Over 13,000 women reported that they experienced domestic violence in April alone, which is 1.3 times higher than in the same period last year.

Solution

In October, suicides among women in Japan increased almost 83% compared to the same month last year, clearly indicating that women are being disproportionately affected by COVID. By supporting this project, you will help to fund the training of 60 crisis lifeline support workers over the next year, and to ensure that these resources are reaching the women that need help, at the time needed. Your donation will help change lives by allowing more women facing violence at home to access support.

Long-Term Impact

By supporting this project, you will help to fund the training of 60 crisis lifeline support workers over the next year, and to ensure that these resources are reaching the women that need help. Japan, and the world, is facing unprecedented challenges to maintaining mental health, and that this will likely be the case for the coming year. Your donation will help change lives by allowing more women facing violence at home to access support when they need it, from the Lifeline and the Chat.
