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

Many women, children, and men in the world are victims of domestic violence – 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 experiencing abuse or domestic violence, you do not have to deal with this on your own. Staff from 24 hotlines that support people experiencing abuse and domestic violence in Illinois, United States can help. Contact them if these signs of abuse sound familiar:

  • Your partner/family member has an unpredictable, violent temperament, and they direct the anger at you
  • You are being controlled by your partner/family member
  • You are embarrassed for your close ones to see how your partner/family member treats you
  • Your devices are being monitored or tracked by a partner/family member
  • Being exposed to intimidation and coercion
  • You feel threatened all the time
  • Avoiding certain topics so that you don’t anger your partner/family member
  • Your partner/family member blames you for how they behave
