April: Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness month. Catalyst Physical Therapy would like to increase awareness of this as well as increase funding to our local Safe House which provides housing, crisis services, and resources to anyone with past or present experience of sexual violence, sexual assault, or domestic violence. Lets help keep our community strong!


Did you know:

🔹1 out of 3 women and 1 out of 6 men have experienced sexual abuse in some form

🔹Every 92 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted

🔹Ages 12-34 are the highest risk years for rape and sexual assault

🔹Approximately 1 in 5 women in the U.S. reported completed or attempted rape at some point in their lifetime

🔹American Indians are twice as likely to experience a rape/sexual assault compared to all races

🔹An estimated 80,600 inmates each year experience sexual violence while in prison or jail

🔹The likelihood that a person suffers suicidal or depressive thoughts increases after sexual violence

🔹Sexual violence also affects victims’ relationships with their family, friends, and co-workers


🔹 We are lucky to have great resources in the Bitterroot Valley to help if you or someone you love is/has been a victim of sexual violence
