If you are being abused...
◊ You are not alone. There are people who can understand the problems you are facing and support you.
◊ You can talk with a friend, relative, anyone you trust and think will be supportive. Talking with someone can be the first step in getting the help that you need. Do not let anyone deny the violence you have experienced.
◊ You can call the police, or have a doctor check your injuries.
◊ You may be able to obtain a Temporary Protective Order (TPO) from the courts.
◊ You can call a domestic violence hotline for assistance.
