Domestic Violence Resources
Please note – as many violence support websites do – that Internet history can be difficult to completely clear if activities on a home computer may be monitored by an abuser. In some cases using an alternate machine, such as at a public library, may be preferable/necessary.
Each of the resources below offers a variety of information and support for victims of violence; I’m highlighting a couple of features of each, but my descriptions are by no means exhaustive. Any of the below resources may be a good starting point for getting help.
National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1.800.799.SAFE (7233). “Am I Being Abused?” list of relationship factors to consider. Website has a “quick escape” feature to quickly leave the site. There is also a directory of state help resources, and resources for safety planning
MedlinePlus: Domestic Violence – links to overviews and information from the National Library of Medicine
