Teen Mom UK star Mia Boardman is opening-up about her experiences as a victim of domestic violence in the new MTV International documentary Domestic Violence & Me: Mia’s Story. The documentary will premiere Sunday, 17 October on MTV and features powerful footage of Mia sharing her story and speaking to friends, survivors, counsellors, police, campaigners, and a former abuser to spread awareness around the all too common issue of domestic abuse.
Earlier this year, Mia Boardman revealed to the public her terrifying struggle against domestic violence and her escape from a violent attack from her ex-boyfriend. While Mia’s ex was sentenced to 12 months in prison, she still relives the abusive relationship and the attack. In Domestic Violence & Me: Mia’s Story, Mia takes viewers on an emotional journey as she finds power in unpacking her own experiences to help other victims and their inner circles recognize the warning signs. By speaking to others about their firsthand accounts of domestic violence, Mia gains and shares useful tools to empower others to speak up and break the cycle of abuse.
Organizations providing domestic violence services and resources who served advisory roles and featured within the documentary include Northamptonshire Domestic Abuse Service and Bristol University.
