Assisting Someone Else

How to help others:
It can be challenging to be prepared when someone tells you that they’ve experienced sexual
harassment or violence. Below are some suggestions on how to respond and support.

Sometimes someone may not disclose information to you, but you may notice changes in their behavior that suggest something might be wrong:
• Uncharacteristic behavior
• Changes in class attendance
• Withdrawal from activities
• Asking not to be near a particular person
• Increased risk-taking
