1 out of 5 women will be sexually assaulted during her college years. Most of them don't get help.
Common effects of sexual assault are PTSD, depression, anxiety, stress, eating disorders, substance abuse, self-harm, sleep disorders, revictimization and suicide.
Left untreated the trauma steals the student's potential. It hinders their mental focus, decreases GPA and increases the likelihood of dropping out. Unfortunately most students silently suffer. On top of that, title IX cases can decrease alumni funding and outside funding as well as new student applicants.
The solution includes prevention and recovery. Students need to understand what consent is and how to stay safe. And students who've been sexually assaulted need to understand how vital getting help is to their future success and well-being.
It's my life's mission to do exactly this, to help you change the culture on campus.
