WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

The front of each card asks “Which would you choose?” and shows two situations: one abusive, one healthy. Each card illustrates a different form of abuse:  physical, sexual, emotional, verbal, financial, psychological, and stalking. There's insight on the specific form of abuse shown as well as warning signs of abuse to look out for. On the back, there is a list of Ontarian support resources.
