You are a secondary survivor if a friend, partner, girlfriend, boyfriend, mother, sister, child, or anyone you are very close to is a survivor of sexual assault, physical or emotional abuse. Even if the assault or abuse happened a long time ago, you may be the first person they have told and your reaction can have a tremendous impact on the rest of the recovery process. Often, secondary survivors go through many of the same feelings that survivor's experience. You can feel powerless, guilty, shocked, angry, or scared. On today's show, we will be speaking with Ginger's best friend, Melanie, on what it is like to be a secondary survivor, what her emotions were like when Ginger told her story, and what it is like to be on this journey. Join Ginger and Haullie as they unlock the truth and bring awareness regarding secondary survivors and how they cope with us.
