dc.description.abstract The effect of domestic violence on abused women subjected to domestic violence, the family as a unit and the broader community is of such a nature that it inhibits emotional growth in the individual and the community. This may lead to a breakdown in the mental health status of those involved. Facilitation of the mental health of abused women subjected to domestic violence is needed. They experience a lot of negative emotional dynamics in the process of shattering of the self and shattering of other relations. They are entangled in the process of abuse. They are also under the wrong impression that they are victims and that they cannot do anything about it. This is confirmed by the researcher's previous research done on the lived experience of abused women subjected to domestic violence (De Beer, 2001 : 25 - 52). The psychiatric nursing specialist is a person placed and equipped in the community health services to provide the facilitation of the mental health of abused women subjected to domestic violence. Up till now psychiatric nursing specialists did not receive the necessary credit and were not utilised to benefit the community health services, hospitals and the individuals involved. en_US
