WE BELIEVE YOU

Looking for Support

If you have come across this website after having experienced sexual violence, know that you are not alone. There are dedicated and caring people who are here to help and support you. Be kind and understanding to yourself and know that the sexual violence was not your fault.

  • You are not to blame.
  • You are worthy.
  • You are strong.
  • You are not alone.

How to deal with an experience of sexual violence is extremely personal and there is no right or wrong way to deal with what happened. Every person who experiences sexual violence deals with their experience in different ways. There are resources here in NL that can support you in this process.

We encourage you to reach out to us at The Journey Project whenever you feel ready.

IF YOU REQUIRE IMMEDIATE ATTENTION GO TO YOUR NEAREST EMERGENCY ROOM OR CONSIDER CALLING 911. Know that in some areas, calling 911 means the police may be involved.
