Psychological and mental effects

Sexual violence can make you suffer from any number of ailments, psychologically and mentally. People suffer in a variety of ways which may include, low self-esteem, insomnia, nightmares, fear of the dark, fear of being alone, agoraphobia, physical illness, shame, guilt, bulimia, anorexia, drug and alcohol abuse, hyper-vigilance, anger, wearing lots of clothes, isolation, Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome and many more symptoms.


Don’t suffer in silence

Sexual violence is a crime although very few people report it; instead they suffer in silence for years as if the guilt belongs to them instead of the abuser. The trauma of sexual abuse can also extend into the whole family and any new relationships that the survivor makes can be affected. It can have profound effects and that is why we are here to help.
