Domestic Violence is also known as: Domestic Abuse, Spousal Abuse, Partner Abuse, Workplace Abuse, Child Abuse and Elder Abuse.

Abuse does not discriminate. It happens among heterosexual couples and in same-sex partnerships. It happens in the home, on the streets, in our workplaces and in places that care for our children and elders. It occurs within all age ranges, ethnic backgrounds, and economic levels. And while women are more commonly victimized, men are also abused.

Knowing That You Are Not Alone and Recognizing Abuse is the First Step to Getting Help 

Domestic abuse often escalates from threats and verbal abuse to violence. And while physical injury may be the most obvious danger, the emotional and psychological consequences of domestic abuse are also quite severe. These consequences may affect someone for an entire life-cycle. Emotionally abusive relationships can destroy your self-worth, lead to anxiety and depression and make you feel helpless and alone. No one should have to endure this kind of pain and suffering. Your first step to breaking free is recognizing your situation is abusive. Once you acknowledge the reality of the abusive situation, then you will be able to get the help  that you need.

Types of Abuse:

  1. Physical Abuse
  2. Sexual Abuse
