Where to Start
RECOGNISING DOMESTIC ABUSE
Domestic and family abuse takes many forms. It involves violent, abusive or intimidating behaviour carried out by a partner, carer or family member to control, dominate, humiliate or instil fear.
You may be afraid of what your partner will do, where you will go, or how you will support yourself or your children. But do not let fear of the unknown keep you in a dangerous situation.
WHO TO TALK TO
The Domestic Violence Line can refer you to counsellors who may assist you in processing and coping with your experiences. It is ok to ask for help at any point in your life.
