However you are feeling, try to remember that this is not your fault, you are not to blame, and you are not alone.
- Try to be somewhere that feels safe.
- You might be in shock, so try to keep warm.
- See if a friend or someone you trust can be with you.
- Talk to someone about what has happened. If you don't feel like talking to a friend or family member yet, contact your nearest Rape Crisis Centre.
If you need urgent medical care or attention, call 999 (or 112 from a mobile) and ask for an ambulance, or go straight to your nearest Accident & Emergency department. Find more health information that might be helpful here.
