Sexual abuse is any forced and unwanted sexual activity. Since children are unable to consent, sexual child abuse is any sexual activity involving a child. Most of the time, the victims of sexual abuse know their attacker and sexual abuse often becomes worse over time. A person who has been sexually abused may feel anger, shock, shame, guilt, fear or disbelief.

If you have been sexually abused, as a child or an adult, you may develop depression, anxiety, poor self-esteem or post-traumatic stress disorder. A qualified mental health professional can help victims of sexual abuse, both children and adults, to recover from the trauma they have experienced.
