Abuse is not normal and is never ok. If you are in a relationship with someone, you should feel loved, safe, respected and free to be yourself. This website can help you see what an unhealthy relationship is like and where you can get help if you need it.
There are different forms of abuse, which you can find out about here, but if your relationship leaves you feeling scared, intimidated or controlled, it’s possible you’re in an abusive relationship
YZUP offers support, information and advice to young people between the ages of 11 and 18 about drugs and alcohol.

They can also give advice to people concerned about young people’s drug and alcohol use, whether that be a relative, friend or professional.
Young people can phone the YZUP team Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm, on 0800 1693787 for confidential advice and information about drugs & alcohol or to make a self-referral.
