How to Help

While everyone responds to the trauma of sexual assault differently, there are some common themes that you may experience.secret

You may experience:

  • Changes in appetite (eating too much/too little, not feeling hungry, etc)
  • Changes in sleeping patterns, difficulty falling asleep, having nightmares
  • Feeling shocked, numb, or detached from reality
  • Feeling ill or nauseous
  • Having difficulty concentrating
  • Feeling dissociated from the event
  • Inability to remember details of the event
  • Withdrawal from family and friends
  • Discomfort with sex
  • Difficulty trusting others
  • Fear of being damaged or worthless
  • Feeling responsible for the attack
  • Feeling guilty, shameful, or embarrassed
  • Feeling mood
  • A lack of interest in things that once made you happy
  • Feeling anxious or jittery
  • Denying anything actually happened
  • Difficulties with interpersonal or romantic relationships
  • Decline in academic or work performance

If you have been sexually assaulted:

Go to a safe place.  You may want to contact someone you know and trust to be with you.

Contact a resource.  On campus, please call Campus Police (911 or 307-766-8989).
You always have the option of contacting an off-campus resource.  The Albany County SAFE Project hosts a 24-hr. hotline: 1-800-230-3556.

Preserve evidence.  If can avoid it, please do not shower, change clothes, douche or brush your teeth.  It is very important to preserve evidence for evidence collection, which provides proof of a criminal offense should you decide to press charges.

Seek medical treatment.  Above all, you need to take care of yourself.  You can go to Ivinson Memorial Hospital, Student Health Services, or talk with the STOP Violence Coordinator or the SAFE Project to find locations where you can receive treatment for injuries and tests for pregnancy and/or STDs.

There are a couple of ways that you can make a report.
