Recognizing the red flags of family violence 

November has been designated as Family Violence Prevention Month in Alberta. 

At RhPAP, we recognize it’s a time to learn more about the warning signs that family violence can present within our communities and know where to turn to for help. 

If you or someone you know is experiencing family violence you can reach out toll-free to the Family Violence Info Line in Alberta at 310-1818 anytime in various languages. 

Know the warning signs of family violence 

Victims of abuse will often show the following warning signs: 

  • Withdrawal from family and friends
  • Not going out or doing activities they used to enjoy
  • Not having access or control of personal finances
  • Have unexplained bruises or other injuries
  • Show signs of depression or anxiety
  • Children may be left alone, hungry, dirty or not dressed for the weather 
  • Seniors may seem frightened or withdrawn
