Responding to Sexual Violence in Medicine Hat – Part 1
It’s probably happened to someone you know. A friend, a coworker, a family member. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men are sexually assaulted in their lifetime, often before the age of 18 (Badgley, 1984). Help and support is available, but many people don’t know what to expect when they reach out for that help. This series of articles will explore the Medicine Hat Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) and how each agency plays a vital role in addressing and responding to this issue in our community.
