Enough. Let's End Abuse Together
What is Abuse?
Neglect happens not only to the most vulnerable people such as children and the elderly as believed in some communities. Although neglect is common understood as something that only children and the elderly experience, adults can also be neglected as well. Neglect can also be understood as unfairly and knowingly placing the responsibility of an entire household on only one partner within a relationship.
Some forms of neglect include:
- depriving basic necessities and care of person or child (food & nutrition, clean clothes, adequate shelter, affection)
- withholding medication
- avoidance of medical assistance, abandonment
- Ignoring and not spending quality time with family
Neglect is connected to other forms of abuse including, physical, emotional and financial abuse.
