Abuse is the improper usage or treatment for a bad purpose, often to unfairly or improperly gain benefit, physical or verbal maltreatment, injury, sexual assault, violation, rape, unjust practices; wrongful practice or custom; offense; crime, or otherwise verbal aggression.[1] Abuse can come in many forms.
A helpline was originally a telephone service which offers help to those that call. Many helpline services now offer more than telephone support - offering access to information, advice or customer service via telephone, email, web or SMS.
