Military Sexual Trauma
|Military Sexual Trauma|
This topic area supports service members who have experienced sexual violence. Sexual violence (harassment, assault, and rape) can trigger a range of emotions and physical symptoms. In this section, you will find several resources that address this issue. The Sexual Trauma self-assessment will provide you with immediate feedback about the amount of stress you’re having. The library booklet contains in-depth information about sexual assault and harassment, including facts about sexual violence in the military, common physical and psychological reactions, and approaches for recovery.
If you need immediate assistance, call the Department of Defense SafeHelpline (877) 995-5247, or click the CALL button (upper right-hand corner on this page) to link to the Safe Helpline or other resources to talk with a health care professional. These resources are confidential and available 24/7 to assist you.

The self-assessment provides immediate results regarding level of post-traumatic stress related to sexual violence, recommendations based on the test results, and helpful resources on this and related topics available on the AfterDeployment website. The assessment takes about five minutes to complete. Because stress-related problems often affect other emotions, this page also includes quick links to related assessments.
