Do you feel safe at home?

Does your partner…

  • Hit, push, restrain, hurt or shove you?

  • Isolate you from family and friends?

  • Embarrass you or make fun of you in front of others?

  • Blame you for all of their problems?

  • Scare you?

  • Threaten to hurt you if you leave?

  • Threaten to commit suicide if you leave?

  • Damage your property?

  • Get extremely angry (often without reason)?

  • Use alcohol or drugs as an excuse for hurting you?

  • Pressure you to use drugs or alcohol?

  • Pressure you to have sex?

  • Try to control who you see, what you do, where you go, or what you wear?

  • Become extremely jealous?

  • Intimidate you?

  • Abuse the family pet/s?

  • Follow you, check up on you, and accuse you of cheating?

  • Make you feel as if no one else will want you and that there is no way out of the relationship?

  • Use social media to track who you communicate with?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be experiencing domestic violence.

Domestic violence is willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. It includes physical violence, sexual violence, psychological abuse, and emotional abuse. The frequency and severity of domestic violence can vary dramatically; however, the one constant component of domestic violence is one partner’s consistent efforts to maintain power and control over the other.
