Disrespect nobody:

Abuse in relationships can happen to anyone. It’s not normal, it’s never okay and definitely not part of a healthy relationship. It isn’t always physical, it can be emotional and sexual abuse too. If your relationship leaves you feeling scared, intimidated or controlled, it’s possible you’re in an abusive relationship.

If you’re experiencing abuse, or have done in the past, please remember that you’re not to blame and there are people who can help you.

Helpful resources:


  • Relate Plymouth provides a range of counselling services for those who are having difficulties with their relationships.
  • Elefriends is a supportive online community where you can be yourself. We all know what it’s like to struggle sometimes, but now there’s a safe place to listen, share and be heard.
