Abusive parents and low self esteem
In the last two weeks our therapists have answered 211 queries related to mental health.

My parents again beat me up. They mentally and physically abuse me all the time. I have a dark complexion so my mother always keeps pointing out and says that it's a curse. What's funny is that both of them are educated and pretend to be liberal amongst outsiders but they treat me very poorly. Sometimes I feel that maybe I'm not even they're child. This behaviour has brought down my self-esteem a lot.
