Help a Friend or Family Member
Here we are talking about helping a family whose loved one is being victimized or is being abusive, and they don’t know what to do. We have provided tips for Help a Victim and Help an Abuser , and guidance for What if you live with them? Familiarize yourself with these points, then take action.
Please be aware that the suggestions we make are for speaking with adults whose family members are in an unhealthy relationship. The situation becomes more complicated when a child who has not reached the age of legal responsibility approaches you for help. In these cases, we advise you to seek professional advice, as you may be legally obligated to report abuse to the authorities.
