Have you experienced sexual abuse, assault or harassment? Reach out to a sexual abuse hotline in Michigan, United States today for private, confidential support

If you are in Michigan, United States and were in any way forced or coerced to perform an activity of sexual nature, then you are a victim of sexual abuse. Sexual abuse is a form of sexual violence.

If you’ve experienced sexual abuse, assault or harassment, you might be experiencing intense rage and fear, or you may feel numb. There are 42 hotlines in Michigan, United States who support the victims of sexual violence. Consider getting some support if you recognize any of the following:

Examples of sexual violence:

  • Sexual abuse or assault from someone in your family (incest)
  • Being coerced, threatened or forced to perform any sort of sexual activity
