A Friend in Need

How do I know if my friend is being abused?

What can I do if I think a friend is dealing with abuse?

Keep talking to those in need. Abusers isolate their partners. Maintain contact with those dealing with abuse. It is one of the best ways to help them. The serious and painful effects of domestic violence impact the victim’s desire and ability to end their relationship. Even though the relationship was abusive, they will be fearful of the unknown, concerned about change and sad about losing their partner.





“I worry about you and the children,” “I would like to see you stay some place safe tonight.” “I want you to have a great life” “I care about you”.
