When your friend is being abused...

Your friend is acting differently. You can't shake the feeling that something isn't right…
But what do you do?

Physical abuse. Sexual abuse. Emotional abuse. Neglectful abuse. Abuse comes in many forms – none of which are ok.

Your friend may not talk about it out of fear they’ll get in trouble, that they somehow caused it to happen or that they won’t be believed.

It can be hard to know what to do when your friend is being abused. To help, we’ve created these comics just for you…
