It is important to allow the person you are supporting to choose the terms that they identify with.
Being in and/or ending an unhealthy relationship can be a difficult struggle for someone who feels powerless and frightened, but you can make a difference.
We provide information about academic, legal, medical, emotional, and student conduct resources to survivors of sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking.
We also offer support to secondary survivors, such as intimate partners, friends, family, and you.
Take some time to consider whether it’s appropriate to weigh in.
Then figure out what you need to say and make sure to deliver your message clearly and in a supportive way.
Your support and concern can allow for space to question how the person your supporting feels about their relationship and what they would like to do to address the issues they identify.
