Texting and Sexting: Is this Abuse?

General Material
Publisher(s)

"If you are feeling threatened or suffocated by your partner’s constant calls or texts, it may be a sign that you are in an unhealthy and potentially abusive relationship. When your partner says or does things that make you afraid, lowers your self-esteem or manipulates you, it is called verbal or emotional abuse. You have the right to be in a safe and healthy relationship free from all types of abuse." This handout offers information about sexting and texting, including safety tips.
