Too many Alaskans have been impacted by sexual violence. You are not alone.
After an assault, it may be difficult to know how to feel, if you should tell someone, or what to do next. You may be considering working with the criminal justice system; you may have already reported to the police, and are not sure what the next steps are. There is no right or wrong way to react, and the decision of what steps to take afterwards should be made on what will be best for you. Healing from sexual assault or abuse is a process, and that process looks different for everyone.
If you are unsure whether reporting your assault is the best choice for you, consider speaking to an advocate. An advocate is a trauma-informed professional who has received specialized training to provide support and resources to survivors of sexual assault and other violent crimes. They are free and confidential. See below for additional information about how advocacy can help.
