[…] About […]
Michael, your support of Chelsie and speaking out on her behalf is a huge step for her empowerment and healing. Support of family and friends is crucial for trauma survivors’ recovery. The aftermath of rape can be devastating, but early intervention and proper healthcare make all the difference. Many people aren’t aware of this, but rape puts a woman at a large risk of PTSD. According to a VA Study “45% of the women who reported having experienced a rape met criteria for PTSD. This was significantly higher than the 38.8% rate of PTSD among men who had experienced combat.” Early treatment, love and support. Prayers and healing for Chelsie and your family. http://www.facesofptsd.com/rape-ptsd/
