Call 911 if you are in immediate danger
Do not use a computer or phone your abuser has access to. The use of the internet and phone calls, especially cell phones, can be traced. Avoid cordless phones. The public library has free use of computers at their branches.
If you are thinking of leaving your abuser, you need to set up a safety plan. ALIVE: (314) 993-2777 and Safe Connections: (314) 531-2003 can help you with this as well as offer additional supportive services.
