Leaving Abusive Situations

Ontario women's justice network

"There is a greater risk of violence when an intimate relationship is ending. If you feel that you are at risk of violence by your partner, it is important to develop a safety plan whether or not you are planning on leaving the relationship. Women’s shelters can help you develop your personalized safety plan. You do not need to be staying at a shelter to access these services."
