Any form of abuse is damaging and can leave deep and lasting scars, weather it’s economic/financial, emotional, psychological abuse or physical violence. THE WARNING SIGNS: living in fear of a family member, intimate partner, close friend or housemate; light or dark bruises; visible injuries; loss of confidence; withdraw from friends and family; and feelings of sadness, helplessness, self-loathing, and desperation.

There are various forms the ongoing abuse can negatively affect the lives of the abused, like causing depression, low self-esteem, drugs or alcohol abuse, or even worse: suicide. If you or your loved ones are in immediate danger CALL 911 for safety planning and assistance. Also, free or low-cost domestic violence attorneys can help you pursue your legal rights.
