Are you experiencing abuse or domestic violence? Contact a hotline in Delaware, United States for support

Domestic violence is any action intended to control or keep power over a spouse, partner, family member, or girlfriend/boyfriend. The abuse may take the form of something physical, or it may be emotional, verbal, sexual, or financial. You might feel threatened, controlled, or belittled.

If you are in Delaware, United States and you are exposed to violence, 5 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:

  • Your partner/family member blames you for how they behave
  • You are embarrassed for your close ones to see how your partner/family member treats you
  • Your partner/family member has an unpredictable, violent temperament, and they direct the anger at you
  • Your partner/family member is constantly trying to convince you you’re crazy and makes you doubt your experiences (also known as gaslighting)
  • Your devices are being monitored or tracked by a partner/family member
  • Your belongings and property being destroyed
  • Fear of your partner/family member much of the time
  • Being exposed to intimidation and coercion

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.
