Surviving a violent crime is difficult, and while the crime may only have taken seconds or minutes, the healing process can take quite a while. The road traveled in the aftermath is slightly different for everyone, but we all need help and understanding along the way. It will be important for you to find support during your healing process. Talk with friends, family, a therapist, a support group or other survivors in the Connect Directory section of the National Center for Victims of Crime Website at If you need immediate help, you may want to call a hotline for anonymous support.
