There are signs that may suggest someone you know is experiencing domestic and family violence including unexplained physical injuries, fear of their partner or anxiousness to please them or an obsessive and controlling partner. For more information on the signs of domestic violence download the Queensland Government’s support guide.
Your response to someone experiencing domestic and family violence is important and can make a difference. It is important to respect the person’s right to make their own decision, listen to what they have to say, focus on how they are feeling and coping and show you believe what they are saying.
