"Silence is not an option!!!"

Tips for helping a friend or family member who is being abused:

Encourage him or her to participate in activities outside of the relationship with friends and family. If he or she ends the relationship, continue to be supportive of them. Help him or her to develop a safety plan. Encourage him or her to talk to people who can provide help and guidance. Remember that you cannot “rescue” him or her.
