There are many available options for students.
Crisis Line 836-HELP:
The Crisis Line can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is a resource for victims, as well as friends, family members, hall directors or any other concerned person. The Crisis Line is geared toward support, information sharing and options. Crisis Line volunteers can answer questions or provide support and advocacy to anyone who may call.
If the person chooses, a CASA Advocate can accompany them to the hospital to get an exam, give a police report, or make a report to the University. An advocate will also accompany a survivor to court proceedings. An advocate is there to explain the process in great detail, make sure the client's rights are not being violated, inform them of the next steps, and keep them connected to necessary resources. Advocates can also answer questions about restraining orders.
The staff and volunteers are here to listen, to help individuals discover what they are feeling, identify and process their options, motivate the discovery of their own strengths, empower survivors to find they can help themselves and that they have choices.

The group focuses on developing relationships between group members in a manner that encourages sharing among participants. Members are encouraged to share, risk, grieve, grow, learn, laugh, and heal through issue-oriented discussions and activities. If you are interested in attending, please contact CASA at 836-HELP or e-mail email@example.com and a staff member will gladly help you.
CASA is for friends and family members, too.
The most important thing you can do is listen, believe the victim and affirm that it is not the victim's fault. Some days will be harder than others, but it is possible to heal from this type of trauma. Check in with yourself and be aware of your feelings. Often times it can be stressful when someone close to us has been sexually assaulted. Know that there are services available for you too, as a support person dealing with an assault that has happened to someone close to you.
CASA's services, including the Crisis Line, one-to-one counseling and support group, are for survivors and those who support them.
