Shania Twain has released a new public service announcement in which she encourages victims of family violence to seek help.

“Sometimes home is where the hurt is,” the singer says, adding, “It’s really confusing to be hurt by someone you love. Whether it’s physical, sexual or emotional, abuse is abuse.”

Twain adds that despite victims’ reluctance to talk about the subject, family violence should not be kept a secret. “Violence — especially in your own home — is never acceptable,” she states.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Twain filmed the spot for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in exchange for riding into her performance at the Calgary Stampede on horseback dressed in a full RCMP dress uniform.

The RCMP reports that family violence accounts for 26 percent of police-reported violent crime.
