The very first step to your journey of healing is to tell and stop the abuse.   Remember in this journey "YOU ARE NOT ALONE".  


If your friend and/or family member aren’t ready to talk to someone, you can get support for yourself by calling (1-800-656-HOPE) and find out ways to help that person to begin their journey of healing.   

It takes a lot of courage, strength and time to heal.  No matter what the circumstances of the injustice, we at Young Survivors Foundation (Y.S.F.) are committed to help you on this journey from becoming a victim to a survivor.
