Here is a list of actions that you can take if you find that you are a victim of organized stalking and/or electronic harassment
-- Remain calm. Fear is one of the perpetrators' greatest weapons.
-- Try to find and connect with others near you that understand your situation. Isolation is a key factor in your victimization.
-- Join one of the conference calls for support and advice. The community is here to help. The conference call numbers and access codes can be found at this link: http://pactsntl.org/conference-call-schedules.html
-- Refrain from calling the police too often or else you risk being hauled away to the psych ward. Generally speaking, they cannot do much to help at this time, anyways.
-- If/when speaking to hospital personned, refrain from speaking about your targeting. One word about group stalking and/or electronic harassment and they will detain you and check you into their psych unit. You could tell them your symptoms, however, do not explain that you believe organized stalking or electronic harassment are what caused them. Otherwise, you risk detainment.
-- Finally, If you or someone you know are experiencing suicidal, homicidal, substance use, or other mental health crises, please call or text 988 to reach a trained crisis counselor for free, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
