New Feature: Lynn C. Tolson

In today’s feature, Lynn describes her experiences battling depression after enduring a childhood of sexual abuse. Lynn spotlights the important reality that depression and the desire for suicide are symptoms of sexual violence and not always a “different problem.” Lynn describes the common urge to escape through medicine, self-harm, and drugs in a thoughtful and inspiring story. She also writes about how journal-writing and art helped her to find hope and share this hope with others. Read Lynn’s story here.

    Thank you for posting Beyond the Tears: A True Survivor’s Story as a feature on your blog. I would have noticed this sooner, but as you know, Sexual Assault Awareness Month is a busy time for advocates. Cheers to what you do at end the silence campaign!
