Coalition announces launch of mobile app for sexual assault survivors

(KUTV) -- The Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault announced Friday the launch of a new mobile application called "You Are A Survivor."

Support is offered through the new app to sexual assault survivors and their families with information, resources, and links to service providers.

It is available free of charge on the Apple Store and Google Play Store.

“Today marks the beginning of a new era in our efforts to serve sexual assault survivors across the state," stated Turner C. Bitton, Coalition executive director, in a press release. "This mobile application is the culmination of decades of innovation aimed at reducing the isolation that many survivors feel after an assault.”

The release outlined the app features which include:

• Resources for Survivors: reporting options, understanding trauma, legal options, and the rights of victims.

• Resources for Friends and Family: understanding what is happening, supporting your loved one, reporting options, and responding to child sexual abuse.

Subsequent updates and versions of the You Are A Survivor mobile application are planned, the release said.
