Practical things you can do to help

  • Offer to keep a set of keys and important documents, such as passports, benefit books and some money.  This is in case the person needs to leave fast.
  • If your friend has been hurt, offer to go to the hospital with them, to their GP or another professional they can talk to, like a counsellor.
  • Offer to help tell the police what has happened if the person wants to do this.
  • Help to make a Safety Plan.
