Here’s a message from Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP):
“As the Coronavirus continues to rage across the globe and our neighbors, colleagues, and friends start practicing things like “social distancing,” self-quarantines, and work-from-home, this can lead to something that many survivors are all-too-familiar with: isolation.
Remember that while the world is shutting down, the SNAP network is still here to support survivors who might be feeling alone, isolated, or just need someone to speak to.
You can find contact information for your local SNAP leader on our website or call into our national HelpLine at 1-877-SNAP-HEALS for help. Many SNAP leaders are also offering virtual support groups for survivors who want to take care in a SNAP support group without leaving the comfort or safety from home. For more information, contact us and we can help.
Situations like this can create stress in survivors who feel alone. In those times, SNAP leaders and volunteers are here to help. By reaching out to others, we can reduce those feelings of isolation and loneliness and restore some sense of control when everything feels out of control. While the rest of the world is social-distancing, you can get closer to your fellow survivors, just reach out and ask.”
