If you answered “YES” to at least one question on this quiz,  you may be experiencing signs of an unhealthy or abusive relationship, and some of these behaviours can also be signs of dangerous relationship abuse.

Often times, unhealthy relationship dynamics appear slowly over time and you do not realize you are being controlled and manipulated until you are deeply involved in the relationship. You may feel confused and scared about what is going on, but you need to take action because the abuse will likely get worse over time.

How to get help:

  • It is important that you realize the seriousness of the abuse. This may be difficult, but you are not alone. There are many resources, services and people available to help you.
  • Talking to a trusted friend, family member, guidance counsellor or other professional counsellor can be helpful in finding the supports you need.
  • Our contact info page has a list of people you can call if you need support, or have questions about your relationship or abuse in general.
