Learn about the myths regarding domestic violence & abuse
There are lots of myths and stereotypes out there. The more you learn about it, the more you can understand the complexity and need for change, and the more prepared you are to speak from an informed perspective. Domestic violence and abuse is not OK, no-one ever “asks” to be abused and it affects everyone. Learn more about family violence and abuse.

If you have witnessed violence or abuse, or you suspect that someone you know is being abused, they need your support. Let them know you are there for them. They may or may not disclose their experience with abuse to you. Click here to learn how to support someone. 

Help change the conversation in your community
