If you are not sure if your relationship is safe or exploitative, you can also chat with a confidential advocate at Love Is Respect (we love their chat function, which you’ll find as a bright orange button on the top right of their website) or call 1-866-331-9474.
We truly care about your safety. Just like many other service providers, the above services are legally mandated reporters. We want to hold your confidence and trust, but we also want to be super honest. So, if you tell us or them that you are in imminent danger of being harmed or harming another minor, we really have to report that to local child welfare services. You do not deserve abuse or neglect by anyone, especially a parent or guardian. Want to learn more about mandated reporting laws in California? Here is some helpful information.
