Survivor Toolkit

Welcome to the BTSADV Survivor Toolkit!

Here you’ll find tons of resources for survivors who have left their abusive situation and are now working towards establishing independence and empowerment. For each topic, there is a downloadable handout, or you can download the entire packet. These are great for sharing information with schools, offices, and peers! For each topic, we have also provided links to even more resources within BTSADV and externally.
