Social Network for Rape and Sexual Assault Survivors Launched

Yesterday I launched RASA Survivors a social network for Survivors and Secondary Survivors of rape and sexual assault.

Notice how I state SURVIVORS! There are many forums and groups out there for people which are wonderful, but this site is different. RASA Survivors is a network where individuals who were victimized come and focus and share tool, techniques, etc that leads to a survivor not a victim. Survivor means moving forward, looking towards the future and living life again.

If individuals need to talk about what happened to them there are plenty of wonderful counselors, groups, and forums to go too.

This site is also different in the fact that everyone has a different way of healing. The mental health field is crucial in recovery, but there are many alternative routes that have helped people. I encourage no matter what it is, as long as it is beneficial to others and of course not offensive, for each person to share what information they have.

The site is monitored throughout the day, just to assure that things are positive in nature and will benefit its members.

If you are a Survivor or Secondary Survivor of Rape or Sexual Assault, I encourage you to come see what we are about and make new positive friends. If you are not either, but know someone who is a survivor, do them the favor of directing them to http://www.rasasurvivors.com



I look forward to meeting some of you at New social network for rape and sexual assault survivors!!
