How to Support Someone Affected by Sexual or Gender-Based Violence offers some suggestions about how to support someone affected by sexual or gender-based violence. They are only suggestions and serve as examples. Remember: believe them, listen to them, and speak from your heart.

These are general indicators that someone may be having difficulty coping with trauma such as sexual assault. You can assist them by providing referrals and support while they recover from trauma.
