“I now have the strength and courage to overcome the abuse in my life.”
Sexual abuse violence is a trauma that can cause a crisis in your life that can cause challenges such as trouble sleeping, nightmares, changes in your appetite, an inability to concentrate and anxiety. It is NORMAL to have some or even many of these challenges after experiencing any type of sexual violence, regardless of how much time has passed. There may be other feeling or behaviors, all of which are VERY NORMAL to experience.
Through FREE and CONFIDENTIAL face to face peer counseling, Pathways for Change provides peer support services to sexual assault survivors, their families and friends. Why provide counseling to families and friends? At Pathways for Change we know when families and friends are supported, they will have the knowledge and understanding to be a support to you.
