When the journey begins
The impact of unwanted sexual experience cannot be underestimated. At the beginning of our journey with clients, we will frequently find they are struggling with their mental health, showing symptoms of depression, PTSD and anxiety. Of the people who came to us for counselling support in 2020:
65% had self-harmed
64% had experienced suicidal thoughts
50% were or had been depressed
Reducing the influence of such mental health conditions is a significant measure of our impact.
