Talk About It
The Campaign has been highly successful in getting people talking about family violence so that it is no longer a private issue.
It's not OK has become part of the Kiwi vernacular and has made it easier for people to talk about how they are feeling and how they can get help.
We receive many stories from people who have changed their lives and now live violence-free. Sharing those stories provides inspiration and hope for others.
We also receive many emails and stories about people who want to change or want to help others to change.
Our research shows that more people are taking action when they know someone who is experiencing violence, whether they are a friend, family member, workmate or neighbour.
Family violence thrives in secrecy. The sooner you reach out to someone who is living with violence, whether they are the victim or perpetrator, the sooner they can get help.
