If you or someone you know needs help:

Remember: if you are in an abusive situation, you are not alone, you are not to blame, and you can get help.

In Panahghar's view, domestic violence is a learned pattern of behaviours used by one person in a relationship to control the other person.

Domestic Violence can happen regardless of ethnic background, religion, age, class, sexuality or disability and it can occur in all kinds of relationships including heterosexual, gay, lesbian, transgendered partnerships and within extended families.

The violence can take many forms and may happen once in a while or most of the time. Examples of domestic violence are:

Emotional abuse through mind games
Name-calling and put downs
Sexual assault
Isolation from family or friends
Actual or threatened physical harm
Stalking or intimidation
Financial abuse by withholding money or being prevented from getting or keeping a job
