What is Domestic Abuse or Violence?

Domestic violence can come in many forms. It is rarely a one-off incident and it is not only about being physically or sexually abused.

You may be subject to more subtle attacks, such as constant breaking of trust, isolation, psychological games, and harassment. Emotional abuse is just as serious and damaging. Many survivors will carry the emotional scars long after any physical injuries have healed.
