Helping a Friend

  • Talk to them, tell them you are worried.
  • Don’t judge or blame them. Abuse is never okay.
  • Listen. Don’t try to take over and make decisions for them.
  • Don’t gossip. If you are unsure about what to do or say contact your domestic violence hotline.
  • Stay safe. Don’t confront the abuser. It can be dangerous for you and your friend.
  • Become informed. Visit these websites.
  • Call WillowTree of Posey County 812-838-3077  for information and support.
