Who is a “trusted adult”?

Trust adults are people whose words and actions make you feel safe.

A trusted adult can be a grownup whose actions and words make you feel safe. Like a teacher, a mentor, a parent, a coach – anyone who loves you and respects you. It is always ok to ask for help from a trusted adult and to keep asking the same person or another trusted adult if they don’t understand or you don’t get the help you need.
