What is Abuse?

Domestic violence is a local and global public health epidemic. Are you or is someone you know being abused? Need help? Want information?

Abuse is a pattern of controlling and coercive behavior one individual uses over another to gain power and control in the relationship. People who are abused often blame themselves, think no one will believe their story or think their situation is hopeless with no way out. Sometimes people may not be sure if they are being abuse.
