AMHC Sexual Assault Services shared The Grand's event.

AMHC mental health and substance abuse counselors will be present, as well as Jodi our sexual assault client advocate. For More information please click the link http://grandonline.org/event/men-women-and-children/
Free Admission! Men, Women and Children follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives. The film attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the internet. As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose – some tragic, some hopeful – as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, our tablets, and our computers. AMHC is hosting a screening of the film “Men, Women and Children” in conjunction with various events scheduled for Suicide Prevention Awareness Week. The film is rated “R” due to some sexual content and profanity, and addresses many of the challenges our society faces today around the Internet, social media and peer pressure. The movie is being sponsored through the Safe Fund, a fund set up by Bart and Bonnie Tokas, to bring awareness to youth suicide. There will be a panel of local mental health and substance abuse counselors who work with youth and adults in our community to answer questions.

AMHC Sexual Assault Services shared Sexual Assault Prevention & Response Services's post.
While many are outraged and disheartened regarding the rape that occured at Standford University and the outcome of the sentencing the offender received; we find hope in the fact that 2 individuals intervened, and potentionally protected her from further harm. This is what we want people to do, look out for each other and intervene when someone is being harmed. Marty is absolutely right, we can do this!
From Marty McIntyre, SAPARS Executive Director: The rape that occurred at #Stanford University is generating a lot of outrage about the #rape, the attitude of the rapist, his father and friends, and the judge who not only handed down a dismissive sentence, but also made outrageous comments demonstrating his primary concern for the well-being of the rapist. At sentencing, the survivor delivered a poignant victim impact statement clearly defining the current and future impact the rape has on her life. One of the things she talked about was the two men on bicycles who intervened and caught the rapist. She drew a picture of two bicycles and posted the picture over her bed to remind herself of their actions. Intervening is exactly what we want people to do. These men saved the survivor from potential additional harm and caught the rapist. The image of the two bicycles is a powerful reminder not only to her, but to all of us that we can have a role in intervening. Let's make the "two bicycles" image represent our opportunity and responsibility for stepping in when we see someone being hurt, or at risk for being hurt. We can do this! #twobicycles
A bystander intervened because "something seemed weird," and the victim says he's a hero.

AMHC Sexual Assault Services is being represented at the National Children's Alliance Leadership Conference, this week, in Washington D.C. thanks to funding from the Maine Network of Children's Advocacy Centers. This conference is designed specifically for leaders in the Children’s Advocacy Center movement. NCA’s Leadership Conference is the only such event of its kind; providing education, networking and advocacy opportunities for directors, administrators, coordinators and board members of Children’s Advocacy Centers, CAC Chapters and multidisciplinary teams. We are excited to participate and learn as much as we can as we move forward in the development of our own CAC.
