If you recognize that you are in an abusive relationship, it is critical that you get out of that relationship before it escalates from emotional and verbal abuse to physical abuse and violence.

Familiarize yourself with the signs of emotional and verbal abuse. Someone who does these things is very often also capable of physical abuse and violence.

Take a look at the signs and see if they apply to your relationship, or the relationship of someone you are concerned about. If any of these signs sound familiar or apply to you, we can help.
