5 signs that you are in a violent relationship.

A helping hand

Men that are subjected to violence by their partners often find it difficult to talk about their situation.

 

Many people think that domestic abuse is limited to physical confrontation, but in truth psychological abuse can be just as damaging. Being subjected to controlling behavior, harassment and violations of basic human values can be extremely hard to handle. Fathers often live in such conditions for the sake of the children. They are afraid that no one will believe them, or that they will lose custody of their children. But they need not suffer in silence, because we can help.

 

Everyone’s situation is different, and the help that we offer will reflect your unique circumstances. We can also put you in touch with other support agencies such as the police, lawyers, NAV and other support services if you wish.
