Helping others

Safety comes first

Sexual assault can happen to anyone. Survivors are more likely to disclose sexual assault or other forms of sexual violence to someone they know and trust. Survivors have the right to make their own choices. Support the choices they make, whatever they decide.

1

Recognize a disclosure

Students, faculty and staff may share information with you about an incident of sexual violence.

This is a disclosure.

2

Respond with empathy

Encourage survivors to seek safety and support.

The closest hospital to UBC’s Vancouver campus are UBC Hospital (8:00am-10:00pm) or VGH (24hours)

3

Refer to SVPRO

Referring survivors to SVPRO can lessen the impact of trauma.
