April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Each week this April, we are focusing on a different theme:

  • Week 1: Resources, awareness, and connection.
  • Week 2: Healing after trauma.
  • Week 3: Supporting survivors of gender-based violence.
  • Week 4: A call to action and preventing gender-based violence.

Keep an eye out all month for related blog posts, social media posts at @jhuwellbeing, well-being carts at Homewood and East Baltimore, and the Consent Campaign at Spring Fair.
