Awkward Question: What Should I Do If I've Been Abused?
Brent has a good but heavy discussion around the topic of abuse and how to move forward if we've been pressured into things we didn't really want to do.
If you've been sexually assaulted or abused by someone, please report it. Don't wait. You have several options for reporting sexual assault:
Call 911. If you are in immediate danger, dial 911. Help will come to you, wherever you are.
Contact the local police department. Call the direct line of your local police station or visit the station in person. If you are on a college campus you may also be able to contact campus-based law enforcement.
Visit a medical center. If you are being treated for injuries resulting from sexual assault, tell a medical professional that you wish to report the crime. You can also choose to have a sexual assault forensic exam. To find an appropriate local health facility that is prepared to care for survivors, call the National Sexual Assault Hotline 800.656.HOPE (4673).
To learn more about the options in your area, call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800.656.HOPE (4673). You’ll be connected to a staff member from a local sexual assault service provider who will walk you through the process of getting help and reporting to law enforcement at your own pace.
