STOP Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence occurs when a family member, partner or ex-partner attempts to physically or psychologically dominate. Partners may be married or not married; living together, separated or dating. The abuse takes many forms and can happen all the time or once in a while and it should not be disregarded. 

"Sorry" is just a word!
Examples of abuse include:

  • name-calling or putdowns
  • keeping a partner from contacting their family or friends
  • not giving money
  • Controlling partner’s movement.
  • actual or threatened physical harm
  • sexual abuse- unwanted or forced sexual activity
  • stalking
  • intimidation
  • physical assault such as pushing, shoving, hitting

When this happens remember you are not alone and help is at hand. If you can't leave your house use the phone to contact help and support.

Government has set up a special cell with a 24*7 helpline (181) for partners facing domestic abuse.
