Home > Legal Issues > Minors: Advocacy, Counseling and Consent

Working with minors who are victims of sexual assault can be challenging. Minors need the same services as adults including health care, forensic evidence collection, medical and criminal justice advocacy, counseling and more. A wide range of laws govern how old a minor has to be to consent to each of these services.
