If you see something you think may be abusive…

If you see a situation between other teens that you think might be abusive like:

Someone shouting, yelling, grabbing, pushing, slapping, or being violent with another person…

You can help.

When witnessing an abusive situation, it’s easy to think, “What can I do? I’m only one person,” or “It’s not my business,” or simply pretend it’s not happening. We feel it is your obligation to help a friend in an abusive relationship. The attitude of “there’s nothing I can do” is one reason why relationship violence continues to grow.

Trust how you feel! If you think something isn’t right, it probably isn’t.
