LDS abuse resources at FLOODLIT.org can help you learn about or get help regarding Mormon sex abuse.
First, you can call local police about the abuse. Dial 911 in most locations in the US, 999 or 112 in the UK, 112 in many parts of Europe, or a different emergency number.
In the United States, you can call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1.800.656.4673 (800.656.HOPE) for 24/7 confidential, private support.
FLOODLIT has a private sexual abuse survivors support network for people who were abused by LDS church members.
Remember, the abuse wasn’t your fault. Even though LDS church leaders have historically taught that abuse victims can sometimes be at least partially responsible for their abuse, you are not to blame – not even a little – for the abusive decisions of someone else.
We hope you find these LDS abuse survivor resources useful.
