Life Services recognizes there is a connection between an increased number of sexual partners, unwanted pregnancies, STD’s and sexual trauma. By the age of 18, one out of three women and one out of four-five men will be sexually abused or assaulted. One in nine women will be raped in her lifetime. Shame, guilt, and fear prevent many from seeking the help they need. Most are unaware of how the lasting effects of trauma are negatively affecting their daily life and relationships. Symptoms like difficulty regulating emotions, sleeping, anxiety attacks, problems with intimacy and trust, addictions or eating disorders, and other symptoms of PTSD are common.
