Help & Support

It's okay to leave a group.

Professional Support

We encourage survivors and current members of all high-control groups and cults to seek advice, guidance and support from licensed professionals (BACP registered in the UK or the IAPT via the, or the APA in the US).

Catalyst is a UK-based counselling, training, and legal support service and registered charity.

Scam Busting

If you believe you've been part of an MLM-like scam, or paid monies via undue influence, contact Action Fraud

in the UK. If you are concerned that an organisation is insolvent, contact The Insolvency Service (UK)

Further Resources

If you want further information on cults, go to the Cult Information Centre based in the UK. Dare to Doubt, another excellent online resource. Encourage Survivors of Cults and Abuse.

Writer and educator Dr Alexandra Stein has some great resources here.

If you are in crisis and just need someone to talk to, please contact The Samaritans.
