Getting Help Now: 5 Resources for Survivors of Assault & Domestic Violence


As a survivor of sexual assault and an advocate for survivors everywhere, I am committed to using my platform to raise awareness and provide resources to those in need. My platform, Strength Over Silence, aims to break the stigma surrounding sexual assault and domestic violence and empower survivors to seek the help and support they need.

If you or someone you know has experienced sexual assault or domestic violence, it is important to remember that you are not alone and there is help available. Here are five resources that can provide immediate support:

  1. National Sexual Assault Hotline: The National Sexual Assault Hotline offers confidential support 24/7 to survivors of sexual assault. You can call 800-656-4673 or visit their website at https://www.rainn.org/about-national-sexual-assault-telephone-hotline.

  2. National Domestic Violence Hotline: The National Domestic Violence Hotline offers confidential support 24/7 to survivors of domestic violence. You can call 800-799-7233 or visit their website at https://www.thehotline.org/.

  3. Crisis Text Line: The Crisis Text Line provides free, 24/7 support for those in crisis. Simply text HOME to 741741 to connect with a trained crisis counselor. Visit their website at https://www.crisistextline.org/ for more information.

  4. BetterHelp: BetterHelp is a virtual counseling service that allows you to connect with licensed therapists online from the comfort of your own home. Visit their website at https://www.betterhelp.com/ to learn more.

  5. Psychology Today: Psychology Today is a directory of therapists and support groups. You can search for therapists in your area based on your needs and preferences. Visit their website at https://www.psychologytoday.com/ to find a therapist or support group near you.

Remember, speaking up and seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness. You deserve to heal and move forward from the trauma you have experienced. These resources are here to support you every step of the way.
