Whether you are concerned for yourself or someone you care about, Break the Cycle has information that may help you. The information provided in this section may help you learn more about dating and domestic violence and find referrals to people and organizations that can help.

Remember, everyone has the right to a safe and healthy relationship and home. By educating yourself and by caring about these issues, you are joining Break the Cycle in the important effort to end domestic violence.

Note: Throughout this web site, we refer to victims as "she" and abusers as "he" because that is the reality of most reported cases of relationship violence. However, boys and men can be victims, and girls and women can be abusers; and domestic violence occurs in same-sex relationships. The information provided applies equally in those cases.
