Crisis Situations - Stalking

Safety is Important

  • Being stalked is usually frightening and stressful. Often, people are right to be worried—stalking can escalate quickly into more dangerous crimes. We strongly urge you to be in contact with professionals who can help.  This is unlikely to be a situation you can safely resolve on your own. SHARE can help you assess the situation and make a safety plan. 
  • You should be in contact with the Yale Police for protection. SHARE can connect you with the right people, and help throughout the process. 
  • Your physical safety is critical, and so it is our initial focus. But your emotional well-being matters too. SHARE will offer counseling and support, as well as practical help. Call us at any time of day or night. We are here for you. View more information about the dynamics of stalking.
