Cyber sexual assault can impact your mental health. This includes your psychological, emotional, and social well-being. Experiencing cyber sexual assault can affect the way we feel, think, and act. Cyber sexual assault can change how we manage stress, the choices we make, and how we relate to others. Whatever you’re experiencing, you’re not alone. Here are some resources to assist with recovery:

The Badass Army
Founded in August 2017, BADASS is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support to victims of revenge porn/image abuse, and eradicating the revenge porn through education, advocacy, and legislation. Their goal is to support survivors with the tools they need to become their own advocates.
On HeartMob, you can receive help in the form of supportive messages. They can support you while reporting a specific profile or comment and while documenting harassment on social media. Their community of bystanders is there to send support. It is helpful to engage other people in the process of reporting and documenting. These processes can be overwhelming, but you don’t have to do them alone.
