Understanding family violence
Family violence is not always physical or sexual abuse. It can include controlling and coercive behaviours such as making threats, monitoring you, limiting your contact with other people, stopping you from accessing care, or controlling the way you get and spend money.
If you are worried someone you know or care about is experiencing family violence, there are some simple things you can do to help and support them.
