There is safety in numbers. When you have the chance, take somebody with you. If possible try and stay in groups of 3 or more.
Your body language should be strong and with a good walking pace. Keep your head and eyes up. Make eye contact with people who approach you or linger in your environment.
Phrases such as "I can't live without you," or 'I don't want to be here anymore," should be reported.
Understand intrusive conversations and be aware about the personal information you are sharing with others, even if they are a familiar face.
Set ground rules at home, work, and campus for friends, guests and others that enter your inner circle.
Confide in your family and friends about a person in your life whose actions are concerning, especially if you have safety concerns for yourself or others.
Stand firm if your response to somebody is “No.’ Your first thought is usually the right thought. Don't be charmed or manipulated to change your decision. Trust your intuition. Honor your "No."
If you are concerned about the behavior of an individual, report it. Some examples include threatening words, intimidation, aggression or stalking.
