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

Domestic violence is any behaviour that aims to dominate or maintain control over a partner, spouse, family member or girlfriend/boyfriend. The abuse may be physical, emotional, verbal, sexual or financial in nature. You may feel controlled, threatened, coerced or demeaned.

If you are experiencing abuse or domestic violence, you do not have to deal with this on your own. Staff from 1 hotlines that support people experiencing abuse and domestic violence in Panama can help. Contact them if these signs of abuse sound familiar:

  • Avoiding certain topics so that you don’t anger your partner/family member
  • You feel threatened all the time
  • Being forced to have unsafe sex
  • Your belongings and property being destroyed
  • You are embarrassed for your close ones to see how your partner/family member treats you
  • Your partner/family member constantly checks up on you
  • Being forced to have sex or perform other sexual activities that you don’t want to
  • Your privacy online being invaded

Victims of abuse and domestic violence can be in a difficult position. They once had (or still have) love for the abuser. On the other hand, they are constantly exposed to harm from someone who should love them back. This can feel puzzling and scary.

There is no universal recipe for setting free from abuse and domestic violence. However, know that many women, children, and men in Panama have made it. The first step in the process is opening up to a trusted and understanding person. Then, you can find your way out.

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