If you or someone you know has been a victim of sexual assault, please know that help is available.   Sexual assault, rape, forced sex, or unwanted sexual advances can have many detrimental physical and emotional effects.   Seeking help can assist in the process of healing from sexual trauma and regaining a sense of control and power over one’s life.

If you have been sexually assaulted:
