The first thing you should know if you were raped or sexually assaulted is that it was not your fault. For local rape crisis hotlines click here or scroll down. You can call the National Sexual Assault Hotline, operated by RAINN, 24 hours a day at 1-800-656-HOPE (4673) or you can search for your local rape crisis center or hotlines. Sometimes local hotline operators are more relaxed and have more time to talk. Feel free to request to speak to a woman. Message boards are recommended as a good first step if you are not ready to talk. There is also emergency information on self injury, suicide and reaching out. For information on ptsd, ocd, date rape drugs and other related topics scroll down.

About the Rape Crisis Pathfinder Return to menu

This pathfinder is for rape victims and their loved ones who are trying to heal and seeking resources to do so. Most rape victims suffer from ptsd, ocd and eating disorders. This pathfinder was created by the researcher as a graduate student in the MLS program (Library Science) at UNC Chapel Hill. The catagories of resources are based on an analysis of the information needs of the online rape survivor community for a collection development research project. A third project on how to communicate the mind set of rape trauma syndrome (PTSD, OCD and panic attacks) via images and text was completed as well. The bulk of the information is found under online resources based in part on the need for privacy for assault survivors. The most up to date and useful sources also tend to be online. The biographies are also a good source of healing and catharsis. What happens to a person in the aftermath of rape can make all the difference in the amount of post traumatic stress disorder one suffers in years to follow. Resources change quickly in a world of date rape drugs and general ignorance by the mainstream. You are not alone. The more you understand about what you are going through the more quickly the sharpness will become softer. Many other people have experienced this trauma and what they have learned can help guide you in your healing path.

This website is divided into two catagories:

I Rape and Sexual Assault Research

II Rape Crisis Information and hotlines

The research resources are primarily reference books and online resources. The Crisis resources are largely online for privacy and convenience.
