Do you know the signs of abuse in a close relationship?

A message from the First Lady, Eliza Jean Reid:

"If you're sitting at home somewhere, or somewhere on your phone and you think, well this happens to me sometimes but it's really not as bad as I think it is, I don't want to trouble those people, I don't want to bother them. You are never bothering anyone by contacting them." Violence and abuse can take many forms. Report it.
