100% felt the event raised awareness of the mental health impacts of sexual violence
97% said the workshop helped them confront and address stigma related to sexual violence & MH impacts
97% reported an increased likelihood to support themselves or others to heal from sexual violence
It really stuck with me when we talked about how the healing process looks different for everyone. I always believed that the “right” way to deal with mental illness was therapy (talking to someone) and medication… yet the presentation gave me permission to explore other ways that might support me as well. Thank you for that insight.” "
