Sadly the statistics aren't great regarding domestic violence, and the reason many people stay in abusive relationships is because they don't know what to do. Here is Divvito's quick guide to getting help in an abusive relationship.
There are a multitude of services available for women and their children affected by abuse. The National Commission for Women (NCW) has collated a list of support groups who can help.
The National Domestic Violence Helpline is a partnership between Refuge and Women's Aid and provides 24-hour support for woman and their families dealing with domestic violence. Access their service here.
The National Domestic Violence Hotline provides a wealth of services and support to people in the United States. Access their services here.
