Hey, what’s going on?

That’s a question we all ask ourselves when we read the headlines about the escalation of domestic violence in Australia.

After five days of brutal abuse, I was at work when he called me and told me to quit my job because we were going out of town. My boss saw me crying. She asked what was going on and offered to help me. That’s when I decided I needed to get out. I went to the police station. The next day I pressed charges…
But that same question, if asked out loud, might also save a life.

How? It might be as simple as acting on your concern. Don’t be afraid to ask your friend, relative, co-worker, patient, neighbour…. ‘Hey,what’s going on?’

Read this powerful story from a woman who felt powerless until her boss became part of her story. It shows what a difference a question can make.
