A NIJ funded research study supported by NIJ found that when a victim of sexual assault discloses to family and friends they often get less supportive responses from those closest to them.  If family and friend's responses are negative it can cause further harm to the victim.  See the summary article here: https://www.nij.gov/topics/crime/rape-sexual-violence/Pages/agencies-react-supportively-to-disclosures.aspx
