If you have been sexually abused you may experience a lot of confusion.

You may feel deeply shamed by what has happened. You may struggle to trust or even feel close to others or react with deep fear to even small triggers that remind you of what happened.

Your moods may vary hugely and you may feel irritable one moment and depressed or fearful the next. Unwanted memories can keep coming back and it can be difficult to concentrate on daily tasks. You might also feel that you need to keep what happened secret in case others reject you or blame you if they ever found out the details. It can feel as if you are going crazy.

You don’t have to deal with these issues by yourself. We can help you through our nationwide network of professionals skilled in dealing with sexual abuse. Our goal is to make the process of getting the help you need as smooth as possible.  We offer a free service for sexual abuse through ACC Sensitive Claims.
