Sexual assault is any kind of sexual activity that you do not agree to.   It is wrong and it is illegal.  If you have been sexually abused or violated in any way, you did not deserve it and you owe it to yourself to work towards your healing and being the happiest you can possibly be.  No matter what has been said to you, it's important to know that you are not to blame for the assault and it is very important that you get help - no matter what your age or how long ago the assault took place.

It's vital that you speak to someone but if you do not feel comfortable speaking to family or a friend, you can contact a Sexual Assault Center for help.   ​These organizations are made up of compassionate trained individuals who will help you get started on your path of healing.  Please call someone today.
