INDIGO is an educational program for adult survivors of sexual assault and/or childhood sexual abuse who are on the waitlist for counselling at SACE. Supporters are welcome. While this course does not provide counselling, education about the traumatic effects of sexual violence can be an important first step in the healing process. It can help prepare participants for counselling as well as help supporters understand what their loved ones may be going through.

INDIGO stands for:
