Get yourself some help!

It is not your fault!

No matter what kind of abuse or violence you have experienced, no matter how heavy your experiences weigh on your shoulders: it is not your fault that you have been abused or that you had to experience violence. In every form of abuse or violence, full responsibility lies only within the hands of the person who has abused you or has been violent against you.

You are not alone!

In 10% of Swiss families physical violence takes place. 3000 to 4000 teenagers become victims of sexual assault in the field of sport or leisure every year. How many children and teenagers are experiencing physical, emotional and or sexual abuse in the field of school-, sport- and leisure? In any case a lot of them and it affects all levels of society. You are not alone with your experiences!

You are allowed to break your silence and bring it to an end and speak up about those "uneasy secrets"!

The silence of the victims is the best protection for all aggressors. Many times aggressors convince their victims that they will have to keep their "little secrets" to themselves. The fear of betraying the aggressors or that nobody will believe what they will tell about their experiences can be huge.
Are you afflicted? Then it is important that you know that there are ways to end abuse and violence against you, by you starting to talk about it. This way the aggressors will be proved and can be stopped.

Try it again and again!

Many who are afflicted have to talk about the experiences over and over again and ask for help repeatedly in order to finally find someone who believes them. Don't give up if this happens to you, but try to get help further more.

Where one believes you and where you get help!

Trust an adult, a friend or a girl friend or talk to someone of an advisory board/information center. Those people understand your fears and worries, consult and help you to find solutions. You find information about information centers in your telephone directory or here under addresses.

You have the right to get help and to be helped!

In case of an emergency don't hesitate to talk to an adult in the street, on a streetcar, on a bus, to a teacher or other people. You have the right and the right of help and counseling, no matter how painful your experiences have been.
