My friend told me she thinks she was raped, what should I do?

The most important thing you can do is to believe your friend. It’s not your job to solve the case or to get your friend to do what you think is the correct thing to do. Support the choices your friend makes even if they are not the choices you would make. You can call the STSM hotline and speak to an advocate to find out different ways you can support your friend.

Contact STSM at (803) 790-8208 or our 24 hour crisis hotline at (803) 771-7273.
