Domestic abuse and child abuse can affect all genders, ages and sexualities from all walks of life. There are different types of abuse and not all abuse is sexual or physical. Abuse can be emotional and psychological, financial, stalking and harassment, coercive control and neglect. The signs can be subtle and abusers can make you think the problems are your fault.
