For Domestic Violence Victims
This section has safety tips for victims of domestic violence who are still in a relationship with the abuser and not planning on leaving ("With an Abuser") and for victims who are preparing to leave the abuser ("Safety When Planning on Leaving an Abuser"). If you have already left an abusive relationship, there are additional sections in the Safety Tips menu that may apply to your current situation.
This page helps you think of ways to try to stay safe if you are currently living with someone who is violent.
If you are thinking about leaving a violent relationship, this page can help you think of ways to prepare.
