Question Speech on Personal Battle with Mental Issues - May 5th 2011, 03:03 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I am a member of a chapter of Active Minds my college does a program called Speak Out Reach Out where students and faculty discuss their battles with things that affect their mental health.

I have an addiction problem I have dealt with addictions to food, cutting, ciggerettes, diet pills, pain killers, exercise, uppers, downers, and alcohol.

My alcohol problems stem directly from being raped on my college campus in October 2010

I didnt report being raped or disclose it to anyone in power at my campus. It wasnt by a student so I didnt think they could do anything, and I dont live in the state I go to school in and was unclear as to whether i would have to stay in the state until the case closed or something.

I cant discuss my problems with drinking without discussing why I drink.
But I am unsure as to whether I can discuss getting raped on a college campus by a non-student without the schools permission or something, does anyone know how colleges react to this type of thing? And who I would need to talk to about it before I could share it as part of my speech?
