After sexual assault: Dealing with the aftermath of sexual assault can be challenging. You are wise to be seeking some group activities to help with this. There are several national resources that could help connect you with more local ones. A place to start would me "sexual assault support services": http://www.Sassnh.Org/ -- they also have a toll-free help line: (888) 747-7070.
