Useful international websites

If you don’t ordinarily reside in Australia, here are some resources from other countries which may be helpful if you have experienced image-based abuse.

Image-based abuse (also known as ‘revenge porn’) happens when someone shares or posts an intimate image or video of you without your consent. If you have experienced this and you normally live in another country, there are a number of international websites offering advice and support. For information about image-based abuse in 12 other languages, please see our help in other languages page.
