It may feel like nobody understands what you are going through. In some ways, that is true. Each person who has been sexually assaulted – or endured any traumatic event – deals with it in their own way. That’s why it is so important to find the decisions that are right for you.
But that doesn’t mean you have to do
The Sexual Abuse Centre Thunder Bay specializes in providing help, support, counselling, and information for women and men who have difficulties overcoming the traumatic effects of:
- Sexual assault
- Sexual harassment
- Sexual abuse
- Cyber Sexual Exploitation and Abuse
These services are free and confidential. Our goal is to help you make the healthy choices that are right for you, provide you with coping skills to overcome the trauma, and give you the support and information you need to help you heal emotionally.
Who We Help
We help anyone currently aged 14 and over (though the abuse may have occurred in childhood) who have experienced sexual abuse or sexual assault. Our clients come from all walks of life, cultures, religions, socio-economic backgrounds, and age groups. The majority of our clients are women, though up to 1 in 5 of our clients are men. We help those who have been assaulted as recently as a few hours ago and those who were assaulted years ago.
