2. How You Can Intervene

You can help stop interpersonal violence or abuse by speaking up and asking the following questions:

  • Ask the victim: Are you OK? If the victim requires immediate medical attention, call 911 or take him/her to the hospital.
  • Ask the victim: Are you safe? If the victim is in immediate danger, call 911 or the police or take them to the police. If children are involved, notify child protection services and the police about their safety needs.
  • Ask the victim: What happened? Try to find out when the incident(s) happened, where and how to establish if there is immediate danger or if weapons might be involved.
  • Ask the victim: What do you need right now? What can I do to help? Provide support to the victim to help them make safe choices about what to do next.

If you suspect or observe potentially violent or abusive conduct you can:

  • Tell the police, another person in authority and the person’s friends if you see something suspicious, such as someone adding something to another person's drink.
  • Check in with your friends and any vulnerable individuals if you are concerned for their safely.
  • Refuse to join degrading conversations that keep sexism and violence alive and voice your disapproval.

Take any necessary steps to ensure that you are not increasing the danger to yourself or others by intervening directly. If in doubt, call the police.
