Scared to call hotline
Posted on: 05/31/2005
My friend is scared to call these hotlines because she is scared that they will tell and she doesn't know what to say. What should she do?
Those hotlines exist for people like your friend, who deserve to be protected, safe and healthy. Tell her that they will not know who she is until she tells them, so she can call and ask them what she needs to know, and then decide if she wants to give them her name. She has nothing to lose - encourage her to call!
