Central Dakota Forensic Nurse Examiners


We are here to help you.

When someone you love has been sexually assaulted or abused, you may want to know:

  • What do I say?
  • What do I do?
  • How can I help?

Surviving sexual assault can be difficult for everyone. Every survivor reacts differently. It’s important to be patient with your loved one and understand that they have gone through a very difficult, traumatic event. It is just as important to take care of yourself.

There are emotional and physical outcomes of sexual assault. Here is some helpful information to keep in mind if you or a loved one were physically injured during the assault.

When someone intentionally harms you physically, psychologically, sexually, or by neglect, it is abuse. This page focuses specifically on child sexual abuse and the warning signs that this crime may be occurring.

What you talk about and when you choose to share your experiences, thoughts and feelings will be up to you. We endeavor to create a safe, welcoming environment.
