If you are ever Sexually Assaulted:

Get to a safe place.

Adults are not required to report the police to receive medical attention.

Consider seeking medical attention.

Remember that NO victim is to blame for sexual assault.  You deserve respect and support from everyone.

DO NOT bathe, douche, or change clothes before seeking medical attention.

DO NOT disturb anything at the scene of the assault in case you choose to report the crime to the police.

You may feel confused, numb, disbelieving, angry, isolated and alone, powerless and out of control.

You may experience loss of appetite, sleeplessness, or nightmares, difficulty coping, mood swings, anger, sadness and other uncomfortable or unfamiliar emotions.
