Domestic Abuse: Spotting the Red Flags and What You Can Do to Help

One of the most insidious things about domestic abuse is that people often don’t know it when they see it. The signs of an abusive relationship are often more subtle than an unexplained black eye, and you need to know what they are if you suspect that someone you know is being abused at home.

Not every injury that you see on a person can be attributed to an abusive partner, but it is often a sign that something is wrong.

Guest post contributed by Rajat Sahoo
