Stepping Out Program is one of only two organisations in the Sydney metropolitan area that specialises in workshops, group programs, information and advocacy for adult survivors of CSA and related trauma.
We provide a safe place for survivors to heal. We employ a trauma informed and client centred approach, collaborating with other services to address social isolation and assist with community engagement.
Our aim is to create positive change by helping clients to recognise and realise their own goals, increasing capacity for independence and empowerment.
The impacts can greatly affect all areas of a survivor’s life and can result in social isolation, homelessness, domestic and family violence, unemployment, incarceration and substance abuse to name a few.
The impact of CSA on mental health can be long lasting and severe depending on many factors. Survivors can experience low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, PTSD, attachment disorders and relationship problems.
