The mental health Pathfinder profile provides practical advice for mental health practitioners and offers guidance on how to ask about abuse, respond to disclosures from patients and refer and signpost victims of domestic abuse. 

Domestic abuse costs the health services £2,333 million every year[1] and every practitioner in the health system will already be treating patients who are experiencing abuse. It is vital that healthcare staff within hospitals are equipped to ask the right questions and support victims through disclosure and referral.
