Health Day News reports that mental disorders may be linked with domestic violence. " People diagnosed with mental illness are more likely than others to be victims of domestic violence, a new analysis finds.

Previous research has linked depression to domestic violence, but this review looks at a possible link between mental illness overall and domestic abuse in men and women." more

Your thoughts?
