Offer concrete help

If someone you know is a victim of intimate partner violence, your support is important. Listen without judgement and understand that it takes a great deal of courage to talk about experiencing violence, due to feelings of shame, humiliation, and fear. Never underestimate how much your support could help.




Intimate Partner Violence can occur in all relationship types (current and former married, common-law and dating relationships, and irrespective of sexual orientation). While the vast majority of victims of intimate partner violence are women, and men tend to more commonly be the abuser, IPV can be directed at male victims by other males or female abusers as well.
