Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, religion or gender. It can look different for everyone and may include emotional and/or psychological abuse, economic abuse, physical violence or sexual assault. Abuse affects people of all income and education levels and can happen to intimate partners who are married, living together or dating.
If you’re unsure about whether or not you’re experiencing abuse, visit the Is This Abuse? page.
If you are being abused, remember:
You are not alone.
It is not your fault.
You deserve a healthy and happy relationship.
