Health & Healing

Learn about the health impacts of sexual violence and sexual harassment.  They carry significant and often far-reaching outcomes affecting your emotional and physical health.  These often show up long after the violent or abusive incident when neither the patient nor the clinicians may necessarily connect the dots. In the traditional healthcare setting, misdiagnosis or incorrect treatment continues to be a problem. Untreated, the impact of gender-based violence, including bullying, can lead to incidents of self-harm, even suicide. The Zer0Now Campaign has called for a national action plan to address these concerns on an urgent basis. Our HealingNow initiative has important links that can give you, and healthcare providers, details that everyone needs to know.
