Speak­ing out can be so em­pow­er­ing

Speak­ing out about abuse is not for ev­ery­one, but many sur­vivors get huge ben­e­fits from talk­ing to some­one else about what they went through.

At the Truth Project, all our fa­cil­i­ta­tors are ex­pert lis­ten­ers, they are non-judge­men­tal and they are sen­si­tive.

Keep­ing a se­cret like sex­ual abuse can be hugely toxic. So to hear them­selves shar­ing their ex­pe­ri­ence can help peo­ple see them­selves dif­fer­ently – they are no longer si­lenced and fright­ened, but coura­geous and pow­er­ful. They can help oth­ers un­der­stand what abuse is, how it hap­pens, and how it can be pre­vented.
