If someone touches you in a way that’s not okay, or shows you something that makes you feel uncomfortable, you don’t have to keep it a secret. Even if a grown-up or older kid does these things, it’s not right. And it is not your fault.
There are many ways that you can help a friend or family member who has been raped or sexually assaulted.
We hope that this section of RAINN’s website can serve as an informational resource and guide for anyone who wants to learn more about sexual violence.
If you are in a country other than the United States, there may be a resource in your country.
