Leaving a Violent Relationship

  • Decide ahead of time where you will go but don’t announce your intentions.
  • Study doors and windows you might use to escape.
  • Keep your purse and keys in a readily accessible spot.
  • Alert friends and neighbors to call police if they hear anything suspicious. Choose a code word to alert them to call the police.
  • Shift arguments to lower-risk rooms, away from kitchen knives, for example.
