Start a conversation
Everyone deserves healthy, safe, and respectful relationships. How do we get there? By starting conversations and building skills. Talk to a young person in your life about what a healthy relationship looks like and feels like. Use our How’s Your Relationship conversation cards and Love Like This series to get started.
Our research shows that survivors of abuse reach out to family and friends far more often than they turn to systems for help. If you’re that one person someone turns to, we want to support you in knowing how to help. Check out our Friends & Family Guide for tips and tools on how to help someone in an abusive relationship.
