As part of our outreach services, our Sexual Assault team partners with local schools to provide prevention education for students and teachers. Prevention education teaches students about body safety and how to ask for help, and gives teachers and school administrators the resources to help students who need it. Our Sexual Assault staff recently made a training video on identifying and responding to childhood sexual abuse as a part of these efforts. The video covers multiple topics, including signs and symptoms of sexual abuse, the importance of consent, and how to handle disclosures. The video is also available to watch and share on our YouTube channel.
If you or someone you know needs help, please reach out. You are not alone. Call our 24-hour Sexual Assault Hotline at 708-482-9600, or click here to learn more about our available services.
