Sexual Abuse Resources from PublicHealth.org

An American is sexually assaulted every two minutes, totaling an average of nearly 238,000 individuals over 12 years of age each year, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. And the Crimes Against Children Research Center estimates that one in five girls and one in twenty boys will be a victim of sexual abuse in their lifetimes. These assaults leave behind a lifetime of psychological damage. These resources from PublicHealth.org should serve as free aids for professionals, students, and individuals dealing with this public health concern.
