In our Pasifika communities sexual harm can be difficult to talk about with families, peers, friends, church and community members. Often loyalty, solidarity, keeping the peace, self-blame, shame, fear, and guilt are reasons why we keep silent. But it’s important for you to know you are not alone and that it's ok to consider reaching out to a trusted family member, friend or your Doctor.
It might be helpful to talk confidentially with someone who can help you access the most appropriate supports for your experience. At 'Safe to talk' we recognise that Pasifika communities each have their own language and culture. We can provide you with translation services using Language Line for Pasifika people if you prefer to talk in your own language.
Safe to talk can speak with you in over 40 different languages.
Monday to Friday 9am – 6pm
Saturday 9am – 2pm
Please ask us about Language Line when you call.
Our specialists are non-judgemental and professional, and they can refer you to the most appropriate services for you. What you say will be confidential.
