This page is to list any and all resources I come across that may be of help for survivors and victims of abuse, rape, or sexual assault. There will also be resources for mental health help as I find them. However, if you or someone you know is in immediate danger, please call your local authorities or the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1−800−799−SAFE(7233). In addition to the hotline, their website does offer a chat feature, in addition to links and information. Most of the resources I list will be for the USA, however, as I find resources for other countries, I will include them. If you want or need help finding resources in your particular area, please feel free to message me here, or on my Facebook page Hit Me No More, or my email HitMeNoMore@gmail.com As always, all links are set to open in a new window/tab.
RAINN – Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network – This website has information about rape, abuse, and incest, as well as information that may be helpful. They have a hotline you can call if you need support or advice.
Surviving Abuse – This is a Facebook page that I help with. They encourage and support survivors and victims with things like uplifting posts, as well as sharing our personal experiences. All of the admins on the page have either been abused or lost someone to abuse.
Hit Me No More – This is another Facebook page. I created this one for the purpose of education and awareness of abuse and the many issues surrounding it.
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline – If you are feeling depressed or suicidal, these people are here to help. They offer both a phone number you can call, as well as an online chat. There is also instructions on how to create a safety plan, as well as other information about mental health and suicide prevention.
CTL Hotline – This is the Crisis Text Line Hotline. They help individuals in crisis by connecting you with a compassionate, trained listener through a toll-free texting service, and is available 24/7.
Love is Respect – This site is aimed at teens, but is informative for anyone of any age. It gives information about what an abusive relationship might look like, as well as offering quizzes to help determine if your relationship is abusive. They also offer a hotline to call if you need someone to talk to.
Sirius Project – This is a link to one of the best lists of self-harm alternatives I have found in all the years I have been fighting the urges. Please keep in mind that not all alternatives will work for all people, and just because it worked for you once does not mean it will work for you again. Keep trying until you find an alternative that helps you this time.
