Domestic Violence

Does your partner:

  • make you feel afraid much of the time?
  • act excessively jealous and possessive?
  • control where you go and what you do?
  • keep you from seeing your friends and/or family?
  • threaten to commit suicide if you leave?
  • threaten to take your children away?
  • limit your access to money or things such as the phone or the car?

If this sounds like you or someone you know, call us. Wellspring cares. We are here to help.

What is domestic violence?

Domestic violence is a pattern of controlling behavior used by someone against their current or former dating partner, spouse, or intimate partner in an attempt to gain or maintain power and control over them.

Types of abuse include physical, sexual, emotional, and financial. These same behaviors can also be used against family members.
