Break the Silence.
Stop Sexual Violence.

Will most people “be over” the rape in a few months?

The time it takes to heal from a sexual assault varies from person to person. Many times after an assault, the survivor may block painful feelings and memories associated with the rape. If the survivor feels judged or is made to feel at fault for the rape, this may also complicate the healing process. It is important that the survivor find supportive people to help with the process.
