Are you worried about how your partner, spouse, or someone who used to be those things is treating you?
Are you dealing with the effects of past abuse?
Are you concerned that someone else you love is being controlled or abused or is abusing others? Do you want to know how to deal with that situation and help the people you care about?
TTD’s 24-hour helpline is a great resource for everyone who is affected by domestic abuse.
Abuse can happen to people of any religion, race, age, or gender. It does not matter how much or how little money people have or what their level of education is. People who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender experience domestic violence. It can happen to anyone. If you are being abused, you are not alone.
The violence and abuse is never your fault and there are steps you can take to improve your safety and begin to build a life free of abuse.
We can help. Call our free, confidential Helpline at 1-800-537-6066
