Do you need help now?
For immediate assistance, please call 9-1-1.
Know that it is NOT your fault. You may be replaying the situation over and over in your mind, asking yourself what you could or should have done differently. But remember, sexual violence is an act of power, and you are not responsible for another person's choices and actions! You did what you needed to do to survive. Nothing you did caused the violence!

- Don't shower or wash clothing
- Go to a nearby hospital or medical center
