Violence and abuse

If you are being abused or harassed, you may wonder if you have any options and who can help you. Or you may fear for your own safety or for someone else's safety.

Violence or abuse is never okay

No one, whether they are a child or an adult, has the right to cause you physical or emotional pain, or behave in any way towards you that makes you feel uncomfortable. Getting the right kind of help can provide you with the support you need to help stop the abuse.
