What is military sexual trauma (MST)?

Military sexual trauma (MST) is a term the Department of Veterans Affairs uses to refer to sexual assault or sexual harassment experienced while serving in the military.

If you survived sexual assault while serving in the military, Rape Crisis Center of Medina and Summit Counties has confidential and free services to help with healing.
