Useful Organisations That Can Help

According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, early signs of DV can be subtle in you or a friend who’s experiencing domestic abuse. You might be tempted to shrug them off as just the normal throes of a relationship. Or, worse, you may think you’re to blame.

You’re not. And there’s nothing normal about domestic violence.

Red flags include:

  • Fear of your partner

  • Missing work or school

  • Personality changes

  • Low self-esteem

  • Trouble sleeping

  • Anxiety about pleasing your partner

Warning signs in your partner include:

  • Monitoring you on social media

  • Keeping you from seeing friends and family

  • Blaming you and others for problems in their life

  • Angry outbursts, punching walls, or destroying your property

  • Tracking your spending or withholding money

  • Controlling who you talk to, what you wear, or where you go

  • Criticising, belittling, or embarrassing you in front of others

  • Taking away your keys or preventing you from leaving

  • Restraining, slapping, or physically hurting you

  • Threatening self-harm or suicide if you try to leave
