Resources for loved ones

When you love someone with NPD, it can be difficult to know how to help them- or even if you should try. The resources below are meant to help individuals who love or are connected to someone with NPD find healing and clarity.

Please note: If you are a victim of physical and emotional abuse, your first priority should be the safety of yourself and dependents in your care. Please contact your local emergency services, domestic violence resources, or call 911 if you fear for your safety or need to make a plan to leave an abusive partner or family member.
