The journey toward healing begins with the truth.
Sarah Kate shares her story of rape, alcoholism, and depression with Unveiled Campaign. This downward spiral that she found herself on was the result of a secret she was keeping…she had been abused and sexually assaulted. She is now on a journey toward healing and shares how she was able to unveil the lies from the truth and learn to love herself again.
Here is Sarah Kate’s Story: (Grab a tissue, you are going to need it.)
UNVEILED is a campaign whose aim is to reveal or unveillies we tell ourselves so we can walk in truth and freedom to fulfill our dreams and destiny.
What Should I Do If I’ve Been Raped?
RAINN, a partner of TheHopeLine, shares what to do if you or a friend is sexually assaulted.
It’s hard to know what to do, how to feel, or what your options are after a sexual assault. Please know that you’re not alone.
- Find a safe environment anywhere away from the attacker. Ask a trusted friend to stay with you for moral support.
- Know that what happened was not your fault and that now you should do what is best for you.
- Report the attack to police by calling 911. A counselor on the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1.800.656.HOPE can help you understand the process.
- Preserve evidence of the attack – don’t bathe or brush your teeth.
- Write down all the details you can recall about the attack & the attacker.
- Ask the hospital to conduct a rape kit exam to preserve forensic evidence.
- If you suspect you were drugged, ask that a urine sample be collected. The sample will need to be analyzed later on by a forensic lab.
