Know that you are not alone. There are resources here to support you to ensure that you are healthy and safe. Our Victim Rights and Options website has a comprehensive list of on-campus and off-campus resources that are available to you: police/reporting options, medical, counseling/mental health, victim advocacy, visa/immigration assistance, financial aid, and other resources. Many of these resources are available to you regardless of whether you choose to file a police report. Connect with Krystal (email@example.com) to go over your options.
*If you have experienced a sexual assault in the past 120 hours (5 days) you can have a medical forensic exam (commonly known as a rape kit), if you would like.
- These programs are free and are conducted by a specially trained nurse.
- You are able to have an exam done even if you do not want to report to law enforcement.
- The YWCA in Grand Rapids (616-454-9922) and Resilience: Advocates for Ending Violence (616-392-1970) in Holland provide exams to survivors regardless of their gender. See contact information and programs.
