The World Health Organization (WHO) divides violence into three-sub types which include self-directed violence, interpersonal violence and collective violence. Exposure to violence can have a lasting impact on a person’s physical, mental and emotional health. Violence has been linked to an increased risk of substance abuse, mental illness, as well as chronic and infectious diseases.
