Hi there.

As your 23, it's going to be hard for her to have the right to break confidentiality. If she feels you're at serious risk and need immediate help, she will have the right to call a crisis team for immediate intervention and to contact the police, again, so they can get to you immediately. At least this is what I know from my personal experience. People such as friends, family, education tutors etc should not be contacted.

You know, if you feel unsafe, it's also okay for you to contact these people (crisis team and the police). It doesn't have to be the other way around. They want to help you and if you feel like you're at a risk to yourself, contacting them is okay and can be helpful. Basically, don't be alone. Don't let it go that bad that people are running after you. Before it gets to that stage, step in and take control and ring them and ask for the help. You're not alone in this. If you want to talk about anything we're always here for you.

Keep your chin up,

"Only in the dark, can you see the stars..."
