Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, gender, income level, educational background, or religion. It can look different for everyone and may include emotional and/or psychological abuse, financial abuse, physical violence, or sexual assault. If you’re unsure about whether or not you’re experiencing abuse, we’ve put together a list of warning signs.
If you are being abused, remember:
- You are not alone.
- It is not your fault.
- You deserve a healthy and happy relationship.
