I'm worried my partner might be abusive

Know the signs and find the glow

Relationships can take work, but when the fun stops and the fear begins it’s time to reach out for help.

Abuse isn’t just violence. It is also when someone controls you financially, monitors your online activity, emotionally abuses you or anything else that controls your life and takes away your independence. Stay aware, know the signs, and get in touch if you think you might be in an abusive relationship. We can help.
