Youth and Children
Injuries come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Sometimes a person is hurt on the outside, inside, or both. Sometimes someone they love is hurt, too. That’s why it’s important if you have been abused or know someone who has been abused that you talk about it with someone trained to help.
You might be afraid of what might happen if you share your feelings with an adult. There are adults who can help you, including parents, relatives, teachers, or counselors. It’s important to be honest when talking to them so that you can receive the right kind of help as quickly as possible.
ARBEST is designed to help you and your parents connect with trustworthy adults. This website has a number of links to provide you with important information and guidance. Remember, you are not alone. There are people who can help, like a counselor, doctor, or teacher near you. Our Resources will help you find agencies and organizations specializing in trauma so you might better recover from a traumatic event.
