You do not have to stand alone when you are experiencing family violence. It is important to remember that violence is NEVER an appropriate response to a problem. You are never responsible for your partner/families abusive behavior.

DOMESTIC ABUSE CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE and there are no typical abusers. Stopping abuse must start with educating yourself and knowing that you are worth it.

FAMILY VIOLENCE CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE and there are no typical abusers. Stopping the violence must start with educating yourself.

You need to decide how you want to live your own life. Talk in confidence to someone and find out which options you have. Consider safety precautions for yourself and your children. If you are staying or planning to leave, create a safety plan. You can do it!
