Prevalence: The Hidden Survivors of Sexual Violence

Although campus sexual assault has become a national conversation, how trauma affects mental health continues to be misunderstood. Many people develop a disability after being assaulted ranging from substance abuse to anxiety and eating disorders. Additionally, people with disabilities before a sexual assault are commonly left out of the national discourse around campus sexual violence. By erasing these experiences, services are not tailored to the specific needs of survivors with disabilities and not as effective. For many survivors with disabilities, finding specialized services may create additional barriers.

Given these barriers, it  is critical that advocates and activists provide services to vulnerable communities that are easily accessible and comprehensive. Resources for survivors with disabilities means making it accessible, comprehensive, and easily understood. Students with disabilities are in a particularly vulnerable position on campus. The following information serves to provide educational materials about sexual violence in relation to ability.
