A renewed campaign is being launched to raise awareness of non-physical forms of abuse, following a rise in domestic violence during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Research shows 1 in 2 Australians find it difficult to recognise non-physical forms of violence, which may include emotional, financial and technological abuse.

Despite many regional and remote communities being under strain recently, Patty Kinnersley from Our Watch says there's no excuse for abuse of any kind.
