Get Help

"Respect all living things" - Saint Lawrence Island Yup'ik Value

Being safe, having a good support system, and reaching out for help are important. Remember you are not alone. We have resources to help you or someone you know. The following are resources for help with unhealthy and abusive relationships. Even if you don't think your being abused, but would like to talk to someone about problems you're having in your relationships, many of these resources are great to use for that. We recommend loveisrespect.org to talk to and to read more about what is a healthy relationship. We also recommend scarleteen.org for great advice and stories from teens and twenty-somethings about relationships, sex, and sexuality.

For a general resources about relationships, sex, wellness and more, check out Other Resources.

!! Are you in immediate danger? Call 911 or your local police. If not an immediate threat, please consider calling one of the resources below, national, statewide, or regional.  National and statewide lines are staffed 24/7.

!! Do you have a friend that is in an abusive situation? Go to our page just for friends on how to help someone who is experiencing abuse, How Can I Help?
