Dear SVRI List Members

Recently, survivors from all corners of the world have been sharing their experiences of sexual violence, assault and harassment on social media platforms through the #MeToo movement. Engaging in the movement can place an emotional burden on survivors and other who engage it. It is therefore, important to take care of ourselves. If you find the #MeToo posts on social media overwhelming, log out, turn off notifications, take a walk, seek professional help, read guidelines on surviving vicarious trauma<http://www.svri.org/sites/default/files/attachments/2016-06-02/SVRIVTguidelines.pdf>, tips for survivors on consuming media<https://www.rainn.org/articles/tips-survivors-consuming-media>, the Bustle article on how to practice self-care<https://www.bustle.com/p/how-to-practice-self-care-amid-all-the-harvey-weinstein-news-because-the-news-cycle-can-be-really-overwhelming-2888998>.

To all the survivors of sexual violence: We hear you. We believe you. We see you. #MeToo #UsToo
