In 2006, the Online Hotline was created as an extension of the National Sexual Assault Hotline, becoming the first online crisis intervention service in the United States.At the start, it was only available 2 hours per day, 2 days per week.
We are a site dedicated to survivors of rape, incest and abuse whether sexual, physical, emotional, mental, psychological, verbal, RA or SRA.
This is a place where survivors can come together to help each other, support each other, or just pass the time. The journey may be long and complicated, but you will reach its end. Individuals depicted in the images are models and used solely for illustrative purposes.
They are diverse group of people with different backgrounds and experiences, dedicated to offering support.
RAINN carefully vets, trains, and monitors the performance of all staff members.
Lots of things qualify as “unwanted sexual experiences,” even if at first a boy or man was grateful for the attention.
It could include an experience that a man may not be ready to label as abusive, or even understand how it might have been.
Demand for sessions increased rapidly, and RAINN responded by expanding the service.
Since 2008 the Online Hotline has been available 24/7 to help those affected by sexual violence.
RAINN has taken extensive measures to ensure that your Online Hotline interaction is safe and confidential.
You’ll never be asked for personally identifying details, like your name, age, or location.
Healing can begin when he recognizes the possible connection between those experiences and common reactions – reactions that often lead to rocky relationships, lost jobs, addictive habits, depression and even violence.
