Feelings can be difficult and hard to make sense of. You might not even know why you feel a certain way.

If you’ve been affected by a crime, there is no right or wrong way to feel and this is ok. We’re always here to talk.

You might feel different things or you might not feel anything at all to begin with. Remember everyone is different and crime affects everyone differently.


Your Feelings

In your head and emotionally you may feel:

  • Upset or angry;
  • Frightened or anxious;
  • Embarrassed and like you can’t tell anyone;
  • Sad or depressed.

Your body might show signs you’ve been affected:

  • Not being able to sleep or having nightmares;
  • Not wanting to eat;
  • Struggling to concentrate or listen;
  • Headaches or being sick.

Things get better with time but if they don’t its still ok and we’re always here to support you.
