Get help with abuse and domestic violence from a hotline in Sweden

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.

If you are in Sweden and you are exposed to violence, 3 hotlines that support with abuse and domestic violence are available to you. You do not have to bear that burden in quiet, alone. Reach out if you are noticing these signs:

  • Fear of your partner/family member much of the time
  • Your partner/family member belittles your accomplishments and makes you feel unworthy
  • Feeling helpless, desperate, or emotionally numb
  • Your partner/family member humiliates you, insults you and puts you down
  • Your partner/family member has told you they will commit suicide if you leave
  • Believing that your partner/family member’s aggressive behavior is your fault
  • Your partner/family member hurts you or is threatening to hurt you
  • You are being controlled by your 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.

You might feel insecure and unsure what the right thing to do in your situation is. Fortunately, there are professionals and volunteers in Sweden who have experience helping domestic violence and abuse victims. They could help you find your way towards a better life.

Consider contacting a helpline in Sweden for free, confidential help with abuse and domestic violence today.
