Northern Centre Against Sexual Assault (or NCASA) is one of 15 CASAs across Victoria, and the regional sexual assault service for the northern metropolitan region of Melbourne (Banyule, Darebin, Nillumbik and Whittlesea). We are located at Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital and at number of outposts in the Northern region.
Our service is free for women, men and young people over the age of 12 who have experienced sexual assault (past or recent) and their non-offending family and friends. We offer 24-hr crisis care for recent victims of sexual assault (17 and over), counselling, group work, advocacy, community education and consultation and training for other professionals.
Her name is a short film made by one of our clients about her experience of post-tramuatic stress disorder (PTSD) following being sexual assaulted and how counselling assisted with her recovery.
Thank-you to Amelie for giving us this rare opportunity to share a client's perspective of our service.
