For Religious Trauma

Getting out of an abusive relationship can be hard and even dangerous.  None of the resources listed here replace the help of a qualified psychotherapist.  Most mental health providers do not advertise help with RTS (Religious Trauma Syndrome, yes its a thing), however any solid therapist is trained to recognize abuse and trauma.  Find one that feels comfortable, even if you have to look around.


  • Spiritual Abuse: stories and resources
  • Warning Signs:  Am I in a cult?/Am I a cult leader?
  • Journey Free:  Online RTS support group
  • Recovering From Religion This website has a wealth of resources, including a Hotline and Live Chat, when you need to talk to someone who understands RIGHT NOW.
  • ExChristian:  Forum for reading stories from survivors and online chat.  Best feature:  write and submit your own story!  The regular members will give positive feedback, emotional support and invaluable advice.  Trolls, be warned:  they will have you for lunch.
  • Divorcing Religion: Janice Selbie offers online personal therapy, workshops and a Religious Trauma conference in 2020.
