Abuse and domestic violence hotlines are available in Styria, Austria

Many women, children, and men in the world are victims of domestic abuse– 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.

Setting free from an abuser may feel impossible. You are probably terrified and feel trapped. However, many victims of abuse and domestic violence have made it. With the help of 1 hotlines in Styria, Austria that support with abuse and domestic violence, you can live without having to endure these symptoms of abuse:

  • 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

Experiencing a wide range of emotions is perfectly normal for victims of abuse and domestic violence. Doubting the clarity of your mind or your ability to understand what’s happening is also a common consequence of the abuse you have experienced.

It’s normal if you feel isolated. Victims of abuse and domestic violence are exposed to extreme stress and often go through it alone. Even though it might feel difficult to share what you are going through, hotline staff in Styria, Austria will listen, try to understand – and help you.

If you feel like you might need support today, try reaching out to a hotline in Styria, Austria. It's free and confidential.
