TikTok has announced a new set of support resources as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, which is an important initiative for the app, given its reach to younger, more socially active audiences.

As explained by TikTok:

“Sexual Assault Awareness Month is a time to recognize the important conversations happening on our platform about sexual violence, recovery, and advocacy. We’ve been working with experts to improve our understanding of sexual assault and trauma and how to foster a safe and supportive space for survivors. Now, we’re rolling out new resources we developed with guidance from experts. Our goal is to make access to support readily available to anyone in need and educate the broader community on this important issue.”
