Rapid Emotional Support Team, REST, was developed due to an increased need for crisis support as a result of growing levels of awareness and organized response to issues related to sexual assault. REST provides onsite crisis support to individuals impacted by sexual assault, including personal and secondary trauma. By placing trained crisis support workers on site, REST can provide emotional support to individuals working towards eliminating sexual assault. REST crisis support workers are able to aid individuals with stabilization, distress reduction and provide referrals for ongoing support.
REST can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-470-1201.
