Join our safe and powerfully educational online HEAL chat community
Interact with Other Survivors
The internet is a vast place where we can find hundreds of articles, blogs, and opinion pieces in seconds. Though this is helpful in many cases, we at HEAL believe survivors should able to turn to credible, research-based, and safe places to get answers to deep questions after sexual abuse. We know that as a survivor of sexual abuse you may turn to outside internet chat communities, blogs, and opinion pieces to find answers to essential questions you may have such as;
Can I overcome the negative affects of sexual abuse?
Will I always have intimacy issues after sexual abuse?
Will my triggers ever go away?
Our team did a research project in 2020 on what information and advice was being shared in internet chat communities with survivors. We found that almost every chat community we came across had non-research based advice spoken as facts.
Our team felt determined to create a safe platform for survivors to connect and to also learn the truth about overcoming sexual trauma.
