|Types of Domestic Violence|
Domestic violence not only includes physical abuse, but also mental, verbal, and emotional abuse. In many situations, non-physical abuse can lead to physical abuse, and in some cases even murder.
Although women are the primary victims of domestic abuse, especially violent abuse, men can be victims as well in both same-sex and opposite sex relationships.

Once a person who is being abused has recognized the situation for what it is, he or she can begin to seek help.
