Help A Friend
If a friend discloses to you that they have been assaulted or are in an abusive relationship, the most important thing you can do is listen and validate how they are feeling. Ensure that they are physically safe and help them access medical attention, if needed. You can always utilize confidential services (hotlines or offices listed on this website) to talk through best steps and how to support your friend. It can be very overwhelming to help someone navigate these issues, so remember to take care of yourself, too. For more information, you can contact Health Education Services.
