You are not alone. We can help.
We all have the right to control what happens to our own bodies. Being touched or interacted with sexually in a way that you did not want is a violation of your rights over your body. If this happened to you, no matter what the circumstances, it was not your fault and it was not okay. You should be touched only in the ways you want to be. Any sexual behavior or contact that occurs without consent is sexual violence.
It is important that each person can make choices for themselves after being impacted by sexual violence. You are the expert in your own life. With information, resources and support, you can make the best decisions for what comes next. You don’t have to go through it alone. We’re here for you.
You're in control
What happens when I call?
When you call, a WISE advocate will listen to you, talk you through options, and you can decide what makes sense for you. We will not judge your decisions or tell you what to do. You are the expert in your life. All WISE support is confidential and free.
You have choices
I want to know what my options are.
Every situation is different, and no matter what happened, you deserve to have as much information as possible to decide what’s next. We can help you work through what’s important to you, and what you need right now. It might include immediate needs like medical care, evidence collection, and legal help, or it might mean talking to an advocate who is by your side, helping you make sense of what you are experiencing.
Your call is confidential
I am afraid other people will find out.
Keeping survivor’s information confidential is a core commitment of our work. We will never share your information without your explicit instructions about how, with whom and when.
