I’m an adult
Something happened to me when I was younger. What can I do?
People are talking more about child sexual abuse now than ever before. The Royal Commission helped a lot of people share their stories and start a healing process. In Tasmania, the Commission of Inquiry has shined a light on further examples where children should have been protected but were let down by adults.
It’s important to know that it’s never too late to reach out for support. There are people who will listen, take you seriously and help you find what you need.
Bravehearts is an Australian organisation dedicated to the prevention and treatment of child sexual abuse. The Bravehearts website is a good place to start looking for information that may help.
The contacts below are provided in case you want to talk to someone.
Remember, child sexual abuse is never OK and it is never the child’s fault, no matter how long ago it happened.
