She can save herself . She can inform others. But she cannot change him. His problems are out of her league. He needs professional help.
Having been there once many years ago I can tell you that it isn't always as easy as just saying "NO MORE" "NEVER AGAIN". It honestly took him leaving me to get out of a relationship where I knew that I wasn't being treated well and that I wasn't happy in but such is the power that abusers hold over those they abuse. Once I was out I was able to say with conviction "I will never go back and I will never allow someone to treat me that way again".
