HomeFriends Relationship QuestionsI think my friend is in an abusive relationship, how can I help?
Roy Murray asked 2 years ago

My friend has been dating her boyfriend for a few months now and things seem to be getting really bad. He's always yelling at her and she seems really scared of him. I'm worried that he's abusing her, but I'm not sure what to do. I don't want to get involved if it's none of my business, but I also don't want to see my friend get hurt.

It is hard to know what to do when you suspect that a friend is in an abusive relationship. The most important thing you can do is talk to your friend about it. See if she's willing to open up about what's going on. If she's not ready to talk, let her know that you're there for her if she changes her mind. In the meantime, you could research abuse hotlines and shelters in your area so you can be prepared to help her if she needs it.
