Proud partner, Commonwealth Bank. Always consider your personal circumstances before acting on financial advice.
Knowing where to seek help if your relationship takes a turn for the worst can be difficult. Although friends and family may be supportive, the advice and guidance they provide may not suffice in more serious circumstances.

If you're concerned about your partner's actions or have growing worries around your safety, here are 3 services that'll provide practical advice as to how to maintain your wellbeing, and delve further into issues before they become sinister.
