No Way Out - Domestic Violence & How it Leads to Suicide

Many of them feel trapped and powerless, and do not receive treatment for their depression, and thus believe that suicide is the only way out.
In most cases, the direct victim isn't the only one who suffers. Many children who are in households where domestic violence occurs attempt suicide. Children are deeply affected by the physical and emotional abuse. They also feel powerless, and have an increased likelihood of depression. They may seek to end their own pain and escape from the toxic environment of a violent household by taking their own life.
