APRIL is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

You know a survivor. You might be the first person someone tells immediately after being sexually assaulted. A survivor might also wait weeks, months, or even years to share what happened. Both are common reactions. If someone you know tells you their story, here are examples of supportive things you can say:

  • I believe you.
  • Thank you for telling me.
  • It wasn’t your fault.
  • You did nothing wrong.
  • I am here for you.
  • You are brave.
  • You are never alone. How can I help?
