According to a study conducted by the National Institute of Justice, “When advocates offer coordinated, early, victim-focused interventions, victims are more likely to participate in court-proceedings, access community-based advocacy programs, and report decreases in distress, post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms, depression, and fear.”
