Sexual violence can affect the whole person in body, mind, or spirit. The responses of the body to a traumatic experience, like a sexual assault, can have lasting impact on health for any person at any age. We provide these resources in the hope that people who’ve experienced sexual violence can have better health outcomes, and that preventing sexual violence will lead to healthier people overall. Additionally, for those individuals who have already experienced sexual violence, knowing the impacts on health may help them in deciding what approach to take in pursuing or receiving medical care.  Additional information on sexual violence is available on the NSVRC website, publications pages, or in the eLearning portal.

This section includes information for survivors of sexual violence and the general public about their rights.

The NSVRC is committed to helping foster conversations that expand prevention across languages and cultures. This page currently focuses on our Spanish-language work, but we are excited to expand into other languages as this project grows.
