Looking After Yourself

Supporting someone who is experiencing domestic violence can be
difficult and frustrating. If you are supporting a friend or family member
you could:

  • Get some support for yourself: talk to a counsellor, the Domestic Violence Line (1800 65 64 63), a trusted friend or family (but be careful not to break confidentiality)
  • Be clear with yourself and your friend about how much and what type of support you can give.
  • Remember that your support, whether you see it or not, is very valuable.
