What is Sexual Assault? GOS0482 250x378
Sexual assault takes many forms including rape or attempted rape, as well as any unwanted or unlawful sexual contact or threats.  A sexual assault occurs when someone touches any part of another person's body in a sexual way, even through clothes, without that person's consent—or when that person is unable to consent due to age or incapacity. 

Sexual Assault Services
This program offers immediate support to survivors at emergency rooms or through our 24-hour crisis line; specially-trained, professional counseling staff; advocacy on behalf of the survivor; and support groups for women, teens, men and family members of survivors.

Survivors of sexual assault experience a wide range of reactions.  Some survivors say that after the assault their emotions go from one extreme to another.  It is important for you to know that what you are feeling and thinking right now is okay.  And that it is important to talk to someone you trust about what happened and how you feel—you are not alone.

Services are free
WRCNM provides free, confidential counseling for any survivor of sexual abuse and/or sexual assault, regardless of age or when the assault occurred.  We are here to help.
