WHAT IS MILITARY SEXUAL TRAUMA (MST)? 
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs website, 
"Military sexual trauma (MST) is the term that the Department of Veterans Affairs uses to refer to sexual assault or repeated, threatening sexual harassment that occurred while the Veteran was in the military. It includes any sexual activity in which one is involved against one’s will – he or she may have been pressured into sexual activities (for example, with threats of negative consequences for refusing to be sexually cooperative or with implied faster promotions or better treatment in exchange for sex), may have been unable to consent to sexual activities (for example, when intoxicated), or may have been physically forced into sexual activities. Other experiences that fall into the category of MST include unwanted sexual touching or grabbing; threatening, offensive remarks about a person’s body or sexual activities; and/or threatening or unwelcome sexual advances."

WHAT WE DO
WHO WE SERVE
We are a group of Military Sexual Trauma (MST) Survivors and supporters who came together to organize and unite veterans, service members and supporters from all populations and all branches of the armed forces at home and abroad to share our experience and advice. 
Sexual violence in the military has been a problem for decades stretching across all branches of military service and all populations. This is not an issue that is exclusive to any specific gender. It is a global issue which has become an epidemic in the United States Military. Now more than ever survivors of MST need your support for better access to alternative theraputic modalities which foster recovery from trauma.
