Recognizing that you are being
emotionally abused and controlled is the first step toward healing.
For help, talk with your healthcare
provider, call your local shelter, or contact your local women’s shelter hotline. Search
online for your local social and human services department. Or call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-799-7233.
If you’ve been threatened with harm
or death, or are being stalked, call
or the police.
Abuse is never acceptable and no
one deserves it. Just like all abuse, the emotional kind hurts and can cause a lot of
damage. Quickly identifying it and getting help can allow you to live free of fear,
bullying, and self-doubt.
