Counsellors are trained to help people deal with their problems. Find a counsellor you trust and feel safe with. You can find counsellors at sexual assault centres, schools, community centers, youth services and other places. Phone a crisis line to find counsellors in your area.
Parents, teachers, or another adult you trust can help you find the help you need and support you in the process. Make a list of adults in your life that you think could help you. Talk to those that you think can help you.
A trusted friend is a good listener, non-judgmental and will keep your story private. A friend will help you to get help. A good friend will help you not feel alone.
If you reach out and someone wasn’t there for you, KEEP TRYING!
You have a right to be believed.
