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

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.

If you are in Washington, United States and you are exposed to violence, 7 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
