Steps to take
Join the facebook support group
You are not alone, please consider joining out Facebook support group for S.A survivors and safe place where people can connect, share their stories and share valuable resources.
Speak to someone
A good first step when confronting this information is to speak to someone. Whether that be a close friend, a family member, a sexual assault helpline or even someone from the Police (please refer to the video above)
It is well within your right to get the Police involved should you choose too. Please note you do not have to get them involved, it is 100% your decision. However if you are on the fence you are more than welcome to sit down with someone from the sex crimes unit to discuss your situation and see what your options are. You do not have to open a case or press charges but sometimes getting advice from a trained expert can give you some clarity around what your next options are.
