Institutional Abuse is defined as any type of maltreatment by someone in an employed position of power. A care-giver, a hospital, a child care facility, or a detention/prison facility are just a few examples.
It is a form of abuse that is not spoken of nearly enough, and one I want to draw attention to.
Recently I was joined LIVE on Instagram by Jacob, founder of About Time for Justice, an advocacy agency in Australia focused on helping survivors of institutional abuse find resources for healing and to navigate the legal system.
A survivor of institutional trauma himself, it was an honor to have him join me to share both his story and his mission to heal himself and help others.
