How to help someone experiencing stalking

Listen. Show support. Don't blame them for what is happening to them. Tell them you are worried about them and ask how you can help. 

Encourage them to seek help, and help them obtain information about resources on campus and off. 

Don't tell the person what they "should" do and be patient. Support their decisions on what to do.

Avoid confronting the stalker. It could be dangerous not just for you but for the person being stalked.
