Let her know that you are there for her. And talk to your friend about her recieving help from a school counselor or the police or any adult she trusts. She really has to get herself out of that abusive sistuation.
I hope you and her are alright. Feel free to PM/VM me anytime, Take care.

Talk to ur friend let them know u r there and are going to support them throught this tough time. try dicuss places they can get help. if it helps them offer to go with them when they tell some1

the best plasces to report it would b school or police or even a doctor
but if they feel more comfortable just telling your mum or another adult then its a good start they can help 2.

take care and i hope your friend is ok.

pm me or find me in chat if u need to talk cos u will also need support if ur going to help them

Talk to your friend, right now she needs your support.Also, see if you can get her to go talk to the school counselor with you. If she won't, and you are worried that her mum might severely injury her, then you should go talk to your school counselor. Make sure that her mum is abusing her, although it sounds like she is, before telling your counselor, but talk to them, or even your teacher, because they can help your friend more than you can. They can get her out of that situation.

If you need anything, feel free to pm me.

I'd make sure they knew they could talk about it with me if they wished and that they didn't have to be afraid. I'd then try to get them to tell someone else themselves but if it was continueing I wouldn't be able to just listen. As much as a friend may trust you and you think they would hate you if you told someone, they'll understand even if it takes them a while for them to relize that it was for there own good. I don't wish to discourage anyone from telling someone else but I'd be extreamly cautious on who I told if it came to that, normaly I'd say a teacher because I find it easy to talk to teachers and trust them very much, but some might not take it well. If absalutely nessesary I'd go to the police as quickly as I could.

Tell your friend that if they want to talk to you then you are there for them, but also let them kjnow that you aren't pushing them into telling you anything that they don't want to or don't feel ready to tell anyone yet. Hope it helps and good luck x
