Helping a Friend

When someone shares that they have experienced a traumatic event like sexual assault, dating violence, or stalking, you may not know what to say in the moment. How we respond matters and can help, or hinder, the healing and recovery process. 

Here are some ways to talk with a survivor who discloses to you:

  1. Thank them for telling you. “Thank you for trusting me enough to share this with me.”
  2. Believe them and listen to their story without judgement. “I believe you and am here to listen.”
  3. Ensure that they are safe. “Are you safe on campus, at home, etc.?”
  4. Ask how you can help. “How can I support you?” 
  5. Continue supporting them and their decisions. There are many options and resources for survivors to choose from as they recover and regain safety. “There are many options at Mines and in the community and I am here to support what ever decisions you make.”
