January is National Stalking Awareness Month. This is a serious problem. Many have lost their lives at the hands of a stalker. Here to help us make sense of staking is Ms. Bevelyn Mitchell.
Bevelyn Mitchell is a native of the Low country, a small crossroad town outside of Walterboro,
SC. She is a graduate or SCSU, SC and Springfield College Springfield Mass.
She has lived at the beach for the past 16 years. She has worked in the field of Social Work for the past 16 years. Much of her work has been done in Horry, Georgetown and Williamsburg counties. She believes that God has given her the compassion to relate to those who are hurting.
Her past work experience includes working for Mercy Hospice, CARETEAM HIV/AIDS population, and the Elderly. She is currently employed for Horry and Georgetown Rape Crisis Centers and the Sexual Assault Services Coordinator.
Working with Rape Crisis allows her to work with rape victims and survivors of sexual assault. This also allows her to educate the community, local hospitals, law enforcement, educators and anyone who listen. Rape is forced, unwanted sexual intercourse. Rape, sometimes also called sexual assault, can happen to both men and women of any age.
Rape is about power, not sex. A rapist uses actual force or violence — or the threat of it — to take control over another human being. Some rapists use drugs to take away a person's ability to fight back. Rape is a crime, whether the person committing it is a stranger, a date, an acquaintance, or a family member. No matter how it happened, rape is frightening and traumatizing. People who have been raped need care, comfort, and a way to heal.
She and her husband Greg are blessed to have two adult children Mitch 32 and Ashleigh 25.
