IF YOU ARE IN IMMEDIATE DANGER CALL 9-1-1
Does your employer have an EAP program? If yes, they may be able to help you. There are other professionals you can talk to in your community. Start with your family doctor. You can search for a therapist here. Find information about your local women’s shelter here. Many women’s shelters will provide support and advice to friends, family members and/or co-workers who are trying to support a survivor. Many women’s shelters can also provide guidance for trans and non-binary people and men who experience domestic violence. Trans Lifeline provides support to Trans people.
