Be Safer

While there is no way to guarantee your safety, there are some things you can do to make yourself less vulnerable. All of this information is intended to help you reduce your risk and be safer.

Ultimately, the only person who can prevent violence is the perpetrator. If you are victimized, it is not your fault. Healing from trauma takes time, and the process is different for each survivor. There are many reactions that trauma survivors will share, but there are no rules for how survivors will experience them. There is no right or wrong response, because each person is different. Always remember you are not to blame and that SSAC is here to help you.
