Nexus campaign to encourage young people to come forward

Nexus NI, a leading counselling charity for victims of sexual violence and abuse, is to launch a new campaign to encourage young people aged 16-26 to make use of its specialist services.

The ‘Break the Silence of Sexual Violence’ campaign will feature on rural bus shelters across the North West of Northern Ireland as the charity reaches out to young people who have suffered any kind of sexual trauma.

Supported by the Big Lottery Fund, the service is free of charge and session times are flexible to suit students and those in employment.

The campaign is part of the Together For You project, an initiative involving nine mental health charities from across Northern Ireland in promoting mental wellbeing.
