EPISODE 7: The M3ND Project

Today we’re speaking with Annette Oltmans, Founder and CEO of The Mend Project. Annette’s personal experience with long-term emotional abuse in her own marriage and her extensive recovery journey is what ignited her passion to start The M3ND Project.

While seeking the help of professionals and responders, Annette experienced Double Abuse® in the form of spiritual and institutional abuse when her cries for help were ignored or brushed away, or worse yet, she herself was blamed for the situation. Join us for an eye-opening discussion around the responsibility of first responders, the incredible damage caused by double abuse or secondary abuse, and the work that The M3ND Project is doing to train professionals to recognize the red flags of covert emotional abuse.
