We have put together a number of self-help online resources on processing trauma, ways of coping and recovery. These have been selected by our workers, for survivors of sexual violence who are waiting for support. They include booklets, exercises to download, recommended reading, videos and apps.
During this time of social distancing and self isolation, there are many feelings to navigate, good days and dark days. We have also included resources for survivors which look at managing anxiety, grounding techniques and about wellbeing.
We know how hard and frustrating it is to have to wait for support and we hope that these resources will be helpful and supportive. Our message is that recovery is possible, survivors survive – please don’t give up.
