Reach out to a hotline in Iceland for support with abuse and domestic violence

Domestic violence is any action or behaviour from a partner or spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend or family member that aims to control you. For some, this is physical violence, for others it takes the form of verbal, emotional, sexual or financial abuse.

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 Iceland 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 has told you they will commit suicide if you leave
  • Feeling like you can’t do anything right for your partner/family member
  • Your partner/family member yells at you
  • You are being threatened that your children will be taken away from you
  • Forcing you to use substances, lead an unhealthy lifestyle, or not take medication you need
  • Believing that your partner/family member’s aggressive behavior is your fault
  • Being taken advantage of financially

Every case of abuse and domestic violence is unique. Every family and partnership has its own story. It’s perfectly normal to feel conflicted and insecure about the whole situation. Going through it alone can be confusing and, importantly, dangerous.
