No two stalking situations are alike and there are no guarantees that what works for one person will work for another, but victims can take steps to increase their safety.
How you can help a friend or loved one that is being stalked
- Recognize that stalking is a pattern of conduct, and a stalking victim’s level of fear and need may vary and change based on the stalker’s behaviors.
- Realize that stalking victims may maintain contact with their offenders to keep themselves (or loved ones) safe. Encourage your friend to work with a professional to develop a safety plan and urge law enforcement involvement.
- Encourage your friend to maintain a detailed log of all contacts with the stalker and save any evidence (e.g. notes, gifts, objects, photos, printed emails or social media posts and messages, or voicemails) as record of the stalking behavior.
- Seek support and information for you and your friend.
- Continue your support during the recovery process.
