AMIS is a registered charity that supports men in Scotland who have or are experiencing domestic abuse.
Each year hundreds of men across Scotland contact us for information or support if they have experienced or are experiencing domestic abuse
Abused Men in Scotland (AMIS) is a national organisation dedicated to supporting men who are experiencing, or who have experienced, domestic abuse.
AMIS believes that each individual victim of domestic abuse and violence and each child or young person affected by it is entitled to expect the highest standard of identification, acknowledgement, understanding and support regardless of their gender, the gender of their abuser or the gender of their abused/abusive parent or carer.
What is Domestic Abuse?
Domestic abuse is threatening, bullying, controlling or other abusive behaviours between adults who are or have been intimate partners. The abuse may be emotional, psychological, financial, sexual and may involve violence. It can affect any relationship, regardless of gender, age, class, disability, ethnic origin or sexuality. Domestic Abuse can damage the lives of all involved - men, women and any children affected.
You may be experiencing domestic abuse if:
- You feel frightened about what your partner might do
- You feel you often have to adapt your behaviour to please him/her
- Violence is used against you
- You are subjected to put-downs, tantrums, sulking and blame
- You feel your life is being unduly restricted or controlled
We welcome calls from men in need of support or advice, and from men and women seeking help for male friends or relatives.
