The NSW Rape Crisis Centre is now also online. You can find it at:

http://www.nswrapecrisis.com.au/

It has info about sexual violence and how to get help. You can also access online counselling via this site, although you often have to wait a while for a counsellor, they are so understaffed.

Another good link is the Local Information Network for Community Services. This covers, Sydney, the ACT and Perth. Go to:

http://www.datadiction.com.au/lincs/default.htm

click on your local council (or the nearest one) and you can search for all kinds of community services, including for sexual assualt, child sexual assualt, domestic violence, mental health, etc. Results will be displayed in order of closest to your council.

Courtwise is a fantastic resource for anybody pursuing or considering the legal process for their abuse/assault. It has information about the NSW court system, and is a good starting point for anybody in Australia to help clear up the court process.

There's a new number 1800 RESPECT which is the violence against women hotline - connected to the NSW R*pe Crisis Centre.

Does anyone know anything about the heal for life foundation? I'm thinking of contacting them but I'm not up for being inundated with christianity....

Does anyone know anything about the heal for life foundation? I'm thinking of contacting them but I'm not up for being inundated with christianity....

I just did a 5 day residential program with Heal for Life. I was worried about the christian issue too as I am an atheist, so I understand where you are coming from. It turned out not to be an issue at all. The christian component only came into focus when having meditative reflections about a higher power. Other things like buddhism and philosophy were also mentioned as an aid in finding contentment and happiness. So no I wasn't inundated with christianty or anything else. hehe :)

Heal for life is much more than this anyway. It was about understanding how trauma impacts us, connecting with the inner child, and using a process to release the trauma and to be empowered.

I highly recommend them. It was life changing. They helped guide me to an inner peace and calm that I never thought possible. The people at Heal for Life are just lovely. It was the best thing I've ever done for me.

Warning to male survivors in NSW

there is not one male sexual assult counsellor in the 55 sexual assult units run by NSW Health

the services listed above cater for women

some say they cater for men but I found they fell short

there is a need for a 24.7 sexual assult telephone line for men and women

with our choice of male or female councellors
