The organisations mentioned in the booklet are American. For Victorian specific information and the contact details of Victorian organisations that can provide support for women experiencing electronic stalking read  WIRE’s stalking booklet  for information on gaining support in relation to family violence read WIRE’s  Domestic Violence Information Sheet
