Every day from 3pm to 10pm!

One woman out of five in Austria has been a victim of intimate partner violence.

What can happen to one woman out of five - can also happen to you. But there is help.

HELPCHAT www.haltdergewalt.at offers anonymous and confidential help. HELPCHAT is a virtual information center for women and girls who are experiencing violence in all forms – physical, psychological and sexual.

From March 19, 2020 the professional online-help and -advice is available every day from 3 pm to 10 pm for women and girls affected by violence. Several consultants offer their help at these times during the Corona-crisis. Register yourself with a “nickname” and define a password of your choice. Everything else you need to know will be explained to you by the consultants, also in German and Turkish.

Above all www.haltdergewalt.at offers the opportunity to use this information center as a dialogue platform, to build support groups and to find information about the legal situation, institutions for the protection of victims and party women organisations via linklist.

Here you can find the rules of conduct for Helpchat.
