Things to Say to Someone Who Has Been Raped

Things to Say to Someone Who Has Been Raped
October 28, 2013 STER

Hello guys, in line with other articles on how to help rape survivors read HERE and HERE, this is about things you should say to a rape survivor. Using these words helps them and also shows that you understand what they have been through. Use them, abuse them (you are only permitted to abuse in this case, lol!) and help someone out there. Have a fab week!

Words to say…

“I believe you.”

“I’m so sorry this happened to you.”

“This is not your fault.”

“How can I help?”

“Would you like me to find a support group for you?”

“I’m here if you want to talk.”

“I’m here if you don’t want to talk.”

“You are not alone.”
