Every person has the right to a safe and respectful relationship.
DVConnect’s Mensline can support men who are using abuse or experiencing abuse in their intimate partner, ex-partner, or familial relationships. Mensline is a free and confidential helpline that assists men to change their abusive behaviours or to access safety from abuse.

Domestic and family violence is a human rights violation and it is against the law
Domestic and family violence is not acceptable in Australia. If you use family violence, your visa can be cancelled or refused. Citizenship applications can also be refused. There are legal protections available to people who have experienced violence or abuse from their partner or family members. Find out more on the Department of Home Affairs website.

- You feel unsafe at home
- You are using violence or abuse in your relationships
- You are not sure if what you are doing is abusive
