If you are a victim of sexual assault, or know a victim in need, AMHC offers immediate crisis intervention and support. When you call, you will be instantly connected to an advocate offering compassionate, confidential assistance, information about what you should do next and support to get to the help you need. Advocates are trained experts and they can provide accompaniment to the emergency room for care, to the police station to file a report and start an investigation, to court proceedings to pursue conviction of the perpetrator, and how to file for State of Maine Victim’s Compensation.
In addition to providing immediate response to victims and significant others, AMHC Sexual Assault advocates offer support and special recovery groups for victims. They are trained in how to navigate the system and are available to provide education and training about personal body safety, bullying prevention, sexual harassment prevention, healthy relationships, campus safety, and technology safety to schools, health and social service providers, and community groups.
To promote a victim-centered response to sexual assault victims, in each county AMHC leads Sexual Assault Response Teams (SART) comprised of first responders and advocates who assist victims of sexual assault. Specifically, SART is comprised of victims and victim rights advocates, law enforcement officials, medical professionals, and legal professionals.
Services are financially supported by the State of Maine Department of Health and Human Services with funding provided in part by the US Department of Justice and MeCASA. For general information about service availability, visit us on Facebook or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
