How to Help a Friend or Family Member

It can be hard to know what to do to help a friend or a family member who has experienced sexual violence or sexual harassment.

A survivor has experienced a violation and/or crime (or crimes) where s/he has lost control over the situation.  It is natural to feel a tremendous loss of power and control over life during these times.  Surviving sexual violence or sexual harassment is a testament of the individual’s strength; however, s/he may not feel strong.   Below are some suggestions about how you can help.
