Emotional abuse can often be more difficult to recognize. This is often due to the idea that victims believe that they do not want help, do not deserve help, or could be fearful that attempts for help could cause greater danger for themselves and their loved ones. It is also common for victims to be unaware that they need help. If you suspect that someone you love is experiencing emotional abuse, it is essential to help them develop an awareness of what is happening.
Domestic Violence has no boundaries. It crosses all racial, ethnic, economic, and social lines including sexual orientation. Studies show that the LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Questioning, and more) community experiences domestic violence just as much as heterosexual populations.
