Where can I go for non-legal help and support?

You may want to reach out for support to deal with the trauma of being sexually assaulted – there are places that you can call for help. There are also Internet “chat rooms” for victims of sexual assault and incest where you can remain anonymous and still get support from others who have been through similar assaults. Go to our National Organizations - Rape/Sexual Assault page for resources.

You can also read more about Sexual Assault/Rape, Marital/Partner Rape and Forced Prostitution on our site.
