For those who live in a community/region that is rural or remote, it is clear that such communities face unique challenges in responding to sexual assault.

The best way to do this is by establishing some version of a Sexual Assault Response and Resource Team (SARRT).
The Online Training Institute (OLTI) is FREE. There is no cost to register, enroll, or complete any of the modules.
