Help a Survivor

Is someone you know dealing with an abuser or toxic person?

It can be frustrating to try an help a friend who is struggling with abuse and recovery, when you don’t really knowing where to start. So we decided to bring some resources together especially for the helpers and supporters.

Reading through some of the other resources to increase your knowledge and understanding will make it easier for your friend (or family member) to share their thoughts and feelings. Our Miniblog may be a great place to start with just that.
