Domestic, Sexual and Mental Abuse

The number of child abuse cases within the Jewish Community is rising.

  • Domestic violence affects 1 in 4 women

  • 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 20 boys will be victims of childhood sexual abuse

  • The real numbers are far greater, since most childhood sexual abuse goes unreported

  • Over 90% of sexually abused children were abused by someone they knew

It is time for the Jewish Community to wake up and put a stop to this now

Suicide, Depression and Mental Health

Suicide is the biggest killer of young people in the UK

  • Young people are often not helped until they reach the crisis stage

  • Poor mental health is a silent killer - prevention is key

  • Suicide and mental health problems within the Manchester Jewish Community are rising

  • 1 in 5 young women aged 16 - 24 have self harmed

It is time for the Jewish Community to wake up and put a stop to this now
