Are you concerned about a friend’s relationship?
If you are worried about and want to help a friend it will help to write down what these concerns actually are. Is it a behaviour you’ve noticed? Are you seeing them less than before now they are in a relationship? Or was there an incident you saw?
It can be quite daunting to discuss this with your friend but you can act on it and speak to someone you trust about it first, an adult would be best, or check out the help and support section to speak to a person on a helpline.
If you feel comfortable speaking to your friend then here are some tips:
Let your friend know that you will always be there for them. Don’t forget that the perpetrator might be putting nasty thoughts in their head about you or others so it might be difficult talking to them. If you are still worried about your friend then act on it and talk to someone else who can help. Don’t try to solve the problem all alone. Check out the help and support section for more information.
