Insight for Friends

Here are some things you can do to help a friend:

Believe her.

Be a good listener.

Be supportive.  Other people may doubt or blame her.  She really needs a friend.

Let the decision about who she talks about it with, be up to her.

If you’re not sure how to best help your friend, get some advice from a rape counselor.

Read a book on surviving rape.

You’re probably going to be the first to be told about the rape.  Be there for her.  Listen.  Support her decisions.  Just be there for her.
