Domestic violence is a widespread problem in Switzerland: every week there is a murder attempt, every fortnight a person dies. The victims are mainly women, but also men and children. The number of unreported cases is huge. Less than half of all victims seek help, out of fear, shame or because they do not understand that they are in a violent relationship. Violence in partnerships takes many forms. Psychological violence in particular is difficult to grasp. Since toxic behaviour often follows a similar pattern, warning signs are often recognisable early on. This is exactly where #withyou comes in:
The core of the project: 15 questions on the health of a relationship - developed with experts and affected persons - so that toxic dynamics can be recognised early and more affected persons turn to help centres before the violence escalates.
#withyou is launched by Tech against violence, a spin-off of the Swiss women's umbrella organization alliance F. Tech against Violence develops digital solutions against violence.
