How To Help a Friend or Yourself

1 Listen to yourself or your friend that is in need.

2 Reach out to a trusted adult/safe person. Try to identify one person in your life that you trust and consider a safe and supportive person. This will help you if you get into an unhealthy relationship or if your friend enters an unhealthy relationship then you know right away who you can ask for help.

3 Believe in yourself and also believe in your friends when they are reaching out for help. Ask questions without judgment!

4 Be a supportive friend/be supportive of yourself and what you need to do!

Looking for Volunteer Hours?

Reach out to us! We have many different opportunities throughout the year where we could use your help!

We will have a sign up link available when we come closer to the event. Your help is greatly appreciated!
