Helping a friend with online sexual exploitation and abuse
If your friend is experiencing online sexual abuse, there are certain things you can do as a friend to help.
- Reach out to them and let them know you are worried and would really love to help them come out of the situation. Don’t push the person.
- Don’t feel bad if they don’t want to talk about it with you. Give them some time and they will eventually open up.
- Involve a trusted adult to help your friend. You can speak to your teacher, parent, relative, or coach to see how they can help your friend.
