- Stay away from bathrooms, closets or small spaces where they can trap you.
- Get to a room with a phone to call for help. Lock the abuser outside if you can.
- Get to a room with a door or window to escape.
- Call your local emergency number right away for help.
- Get medical help if you are hurt. Alternatively, call a helpline program or shelter and get help. Take pictures of bruises or injuries.
