SHARE is one of several groups on campus that are working to end intimate partner violence.  Look for events sponsored by the groups on this webpage, and contact them if you would like a workshop for your student organization.  Consider joining a group to help make Lawrence a safer and more welcoming community for everyone.

Signs That a Friend May Need Help

Those who experience intimate partner violence or sexual abuse can be deeply affected.  They may feel vulnerable and need support to establish a new sense of normalcy.  Here are signs of concern:

  • strong emotions like anger, fear, anxiety, or depression;
  • low self-esteem, self-blaming, or suicidal thoughts;
  • numbness, withdrawal, or lack of trust;
  • increased alcohol or drug consumption.

If you notice these signs or hear that your friend has experienced intimate partner violence, offer your support and encourage your friend to get in touch with SHARE.
