“You don’t deserve this shame it’s not yours.
Speaking out and getting support isn’t a weakness but strength. It may not be an easy journey, but it allows you to break free and be you. As you aren’t defined by the past, you deserve a future.
You deserve to be heard”
This quote is by Beth, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and an advocate for the work of Survivors in Transition (SIT).
Student Life is delighted to be working with SIT on our ‘Speak Up, Speak Out’ campaign. SIT understands how much courage it takes to access their help and with this in mind, they have tried their best to make their support as safe, useful and supportive as possible. SIT views their survivors as an inspiration – breaking the silence and urges them to remember – it is NOT their shame.
