Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA) is the single most common health risk to children today.
One in 10 kids will be sexually abused before reaching their 18th birthdays. For those of us who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse (CSA), the problems don’t typically end when the abuse stops. Throughout our lives, survivors of CSA are more likely to struggle with shame, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress. In young adulthood and beyond, we are more likely to be sexually assaulted again. Even seemingly unrelated struggles like eating disorders, addiction, and mental and physical health problems disproportionately affect survivors.
Change begins with conversations. Are you a survivor? Who do you know who is a survivor? Let's start talking.
The HealingCSA Mission is to:
* build momentum for conversations about Childhood Sexual Abuse
* provide an outlet for survivors to share how CSA has impacted their life
* serve as a resource for CSA survivors and their service providers
