Q: What do I do if I’m a victim of sexual misconduct?
A: You should go to a safe place immediately and contact campus security (24/7) at 705-949-2301 ext. 4444, 911, someone you trust, or attend the Sault Area Hospital’s Emergency Room and request to see a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner. From there different options will be available to you such as seeking medical attention, reporting, counselling, or other supports you choose to access.
- Share with someone you trust. Let them know what you need.
- Seek medical care if you have concerns about injuries, STI’s, pregnancy, or for forensic documentation. We can help you or accompany you to a healthcare provider.
- Contact the Student Services Advisor or a member of the Campus Response Team.
Q: What if someone close to me has experienced sexual misconduct?
A: It is important to ensure the person is safe. Make sure they are away from the perpetrator, and if they are in immediate danger contact campus security or 911 immediately. Always provide them support and listen, without judgment. Support is crucial for survivors, so helping them seek options on campus and off campus is helpful. This may be Student Services, reporting to the police or to the Sexual Assault Care Centre.
