Gibney continues her post by writing: "Domestic violence is not ok. It never has been. We need tougher penalties but we also need more support for those who do want to get help to break the cycle.
"If you are reading this and you are a victim of domestic violence or the perpetrator please do something about it. Get help. It’s out there. 🙏🏻"
New Zealand born Gibney even gave an update as to how her mother was currently doing: "And for those wanting an update on Mama Shirl she is doing amazingly well! She’s at home, she’s walking around, laughing, loving and planning a visit to Melbourne."
Rebecca - who shares a 15-year-old son with husband Richard Bell - has been a vocal domestic violence and mental health awareness advocate in the past having also gone public with her anxiety and depression.
In a candid interview back in 2017 with marie claire, the Gold Logie winner reflected on her life at 14-years-old: “I didn’t understand what anxiety was [then].
“ I would find myself in situations where I’d get panicky and have to run away. Any emotional stuff we’re not dealing with manifests itself in sickness, panic attacks or breakdowns.”
It seems Gibney has been able to move on, telling Denton in June 2019 that when it comes to that little voice in her head telling her she's 'not good enough' she's found the mute button: "I don't dwell on it so much anymore. I do take a deep breath and go 'I'm ok with me'."
