Shania Twain has thrown her support behind a Canadian anti-domestic abuse campaign by recording a public service announcement video.

The country singer has joined forces with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to encourage victims to report abuse in the home.

Twain says in the footage, "Sometimes home is where the hurt is. It's really confusing to be hurt by someone you love. Whether it's physical or emotional, abuse is abuse and it can happen in any family. You may not want to talk about it but family violence shouldn't be kept a secret, you can break the silence, there's always someone who can help. Tell someone you trust and always report incidents of violence to the police because violence, especially in your own home, is never acceptable."
