Violence, abuse, neglect... it can be hard to know what to do when someone you know is being hurt.
When you're the one copping the abuse, it's even harder.
"More than 5,000 counselling contacts to Kids Helpline each year are about child abuse, domestic or family violence, or issues related to living in out-of-home care," Kids Helpline CEO Tracy Adams revealed.
"Last year, one in 10 of these were about concern for another person."
To help those young people struggling, Kids Helpline has launched two comics focusing on what to do when your friend is being abused.
To access and read more about the new comics, 'Alex, Jess & Sacha' (ages 5-12) and 'Quinn & Morgan' (ages 13+), visit the yourtown website.
