“I had been worried about Abi* for a number of years. Her husband is extremely volatile and I know he has lashed out at her before. Over the years I’ve seen Abi change the way she talks and dresses, now she rarely comes out with us. Despite all this, she always said she could not live without him.

When I heard about Bright Sky, I immediately thought of Abi. I sent her the link and sat with her when she downloaded the app and took the questionnaire. Fast forward a few months and she has moved out and filed for divorce!

he app helped her recognise what she was experiencing and gave her the strength to pack her bags and leave… I will never be able to thank Bright Sky enough.” - Mariah*
