HELP for Youth

It can be hard to know if what has happened to you is a crime, especially if someone told you that it was ok, or that you “wanted it”. They may have coerced you into doing something you didn’t really want to, or told you that it’s your fault.

To further complicate things, there are also lots of ideas in our society, often called ‘rape myths’ , that can make us confused about what’s ok and what’s not.

Learn about some of the feelings and thoughts you’re struggling with and how we can help by clicking on the links below.
