Can MEND Help You?

Abusive Behaviour

If you are wondering if the MEND programme is appropriate for you, ask yourself these questions:

  • Are you having a problem with how to deal with anger or anger management?
  • Would you like some free tips on anger management?
  • Do you lose your temper or get into a rage easily or regularly?
  • Do you feel that your wife/partner or children are afraid of you or that your wife/partner presses your buttons?
  • Do you often call your partner names and constantly criticise her?
  • Have you tried to keep her from doing something she wanted to do? Like going out with friends, having a job or doing some study.
  • Do you take charge of the finances – not allowing your partner money for her own personal use?
  • Have you ever thrown, or threatened to throw something at her?
  • Have you unfairly accused your partner of paying too much attention to someone else?
  • Have you ever slapped, hit, pushed or shoved her?
  • Do you ever pressurise her into having sex when she doesn’t want to?

These are a sample of questions about violent/abusive behavior and if you have answered ‘yes’ to one or all of them then the MEND programme is for you.
