Is This Abuse?
Thursday, January 28th, 2016
Many people wonder whether what they are experiencing is abuse. Abuse can happen in every culture, age, race, nationality and socio-economic level. It happens in both heterosexual and LGBT relationships, and among family members. Casa de Esperanza and DECIMOS NO MÁS have created this handy tool to help you recognize abuse in your life and in the lives of friends and family. If you are a service provider, please feel free to use this infographic in your organization for your advocacy work.
If you are experiencing abuse and would like to talk to an advocate, we recommend contacting the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). To download this and other infographics in PDF form, click here.
