Where to go for help

Are you being abused? Are you looking for information to help you understand what’s happening and how to make positive choices for change?

If you are being abused, you need to know that you do not ‘deserve' it. You are not to blame for the violence or threats. Every human being has the right to live his or her own life without fear. There is nothing you can do to control the abuser's behaviour. The abuser is using abusive behaviour in an attempt to control you. If the abuse is allowed to continue it will probably get worse.

There are many services available on PEI that can help you. If you are not ready to do anything right now, that is your choice and it is okay.

Use the information in this website to make personal choices - whether now or later.

Questions to ask yourself:

  1. Do I really know what family violence is?
  2. Do I know the warning signs of abuse?
  3. Do I need a safety plan?
