Abuse Help Guide
Abuse can affect virtually anyone from all walks of life, including men, women, children, and seniors. It can take the form of physical battery, emotional bullying, sexual abuse, neglect, or even self-inflicted harm.
Whatever your situation, you deserve to live without pain and fear. Whether you’re the abused, the abuser, or a concerned friend or family member, it’s important to know that there is help available. By learning about the different types of abuse and what you can do to stop or prevent it, you can make a huge difference in your own or someone else’s life.
People who know how to appropriately manage stress and their emotions are at less risk for being abused or
abusing others. But not everyone learns these skills. The Helpguide Bring Your Life Into Balance toolkit can teach you how to quickly reduce stress and overwhelming emotions. These skills build awareness
and sensitivity to others and help you make the best choices for yourself.
