Reach out to a hotline in Queensland, Australia for support with abuse and domestic violence

Many women, children, and men in the world are victims of domestic violence – this is any behaviour that maintains control over a spouse, partner, family member, or girlfriend/boyfriend. Abuse may be expressed physically, emotionally, verbally, sexually, or financially, and you may feel threatened, controlled or coerced.

If you are experiencing abuse or domestic violence, you do not have to deal with this on your own. Staff from 3 hotlines that support people experiencing abuse and domestic violence in Queensland, Australia can help. Contact them if these signs of abuse sound familiar:

  • Not allowing you to work or get an education
  • Your partner/family member is constantly trying to convince you you’re crazy and makes you doubt your experiences (also known as gaslighting)
  • Any form of physical harm (hitting, slapping, strangling, kicking, burning, cutting)
  • Being exposed to intimidation and coercion
  • Avoiding certain topics so that you don’t anger your partner/family member
  • Your partner/family member is acting excessively jealously
  • Forcing you to use substances, lead an unhealthy lifestyle, or not take medication you need
  • Your devices are being monitored or tracked by a partner/family member

You might feel completely alone if you are a victim of abuse and domestic violence. Many people in your position tend to hide what they are experiencing. However, know that it is nothing to be ashamed of. The abuse and everything about it is absolutely not your fault.

If you're experiencing abuse and domestic violence, feeling scared is perfectly natural. You could be doubtful and convinced that there’s no way out. Talking to someone in Queensland, Australia who understands how abusive relationships work might help you feel less hopeless and powerless.
