National men’s family violence helpline drives men’s behaviour change awareness campaign in NSW

Family violence touches the lives of many, and ripples through our communities.

In a bid to act on this, during February and March No to Violence wants men to stop, reflect and ask themselves, is my behaviour causing problems for my relationships?

As No to Violence’s CEO Jacqui Watt states:

“Over the past few years we have seen a growing community awareness about family violence. Naturally, people are curious. Who causes it? What causes it? Why does it happen? Can it happen to anyone? Could it happen to me; my daughter; my son?”

Violence against women and children is pervasive, constant and a men’s issue. New South Wales is Australia’s largest state, and our men’s family violence helpline offers all men in this state a unique chance to change their behaviour, for good. Men can call our helpline, or live chat via No to Violence’s website: www.ntv.org.au

The Men’s Referral Service is a men’s family violence telephone counselling, information and referral service operating across Australia and is the central point of contact for men taking responsibility for their violent behaviour.

We’ve provided assistance, information, counselling, and referrals to additional services, helping over 150,000 men get the support they need and improving outcomes for families.

Jacqui Watt states further:

“We’re absolutely thrilled to build our reach in regional NSW. We have a responsibility to connect with men from all walks of life. Keep a look out for our ads across the News Corp network, and if you answer any of the questions posed please call the Men’s Referral Service on 1300 766 491, available 24/7, or head to our website to live chat www.ntv.org.au
