For People Living with Abuse
The purpose of this guide is to provide information about services in Prince Edward Island for individuals who identify as a victim, or as someone whose behaviour is abusive. It also contains valuable support information for neighbours, friends or family members who care. The beginning of this guide contains information for victims of abuse and the latter part for individuals whose behaviour is abusive.
When you contact any of the included organizations, they will work with you to get the help you need.
