What else can I do to stay safe?

You can visit our Safety Tips page for ways to increase your safety.  If you are being stalked or harassed, you can visit our Stalking/Cyberstalking page for more information.  You can also visit the Stalking Resource Center website for more information on stalking and harassment laws.  Aside from physical abuse and stalking, if you are being mentally or emotionally abused, you can contact a domestic violence organization in your area that is listed on our RI Advocates and Shelters.  They may be able to help you figure out your options and offer you support.  You may also qualify for a domestic violence restraining order, depending on your relationship to the abuser and the type of abuse you are suffering.
