Medical Accompaniment

Typically, an advocate will accompany a survivor of sexual assault to the hospital for medical care after the assault (specifically for a rape kit). This generally happens one of two ways: The survivor calls the hotline and decides to go to the hospital, at which point the advocate would meet the client at the hospital or at a determined location. A survivor is at the hospital and discloses the abuse. The hospital is mandated to call the local crisis center for services which will prompt an advocate to come to the hospital. The client can then accept or refuse services.

Legal Accompaniment

An advocate can be made available to assist survivors in navigation of the legal process, whether that is criminal, civil or the University’s conduct system.

How To Access:

For immediate assistance, please call SHARPP's 24/7 helpline at 862-7233 or (888) 271-7233 or online at Ask an Advocate during normal business hours. 

Crisis Intervention

Advocates from the SHARPP office can help you work through your crisis. The advocate’s goals in crisis intervention are to assist you in sorting through options, feelings, thoughts, and reactions, strengthening coping responses, regaining control, and renewing previously healthy relationships.

Through the 24-hour support line, office appointments and walk-ins, SHARPP strives to provide support whenever you need it.

How To Access:

Advocacy

Advocates are trained staff and volunteers of SHARPP who meet with survivors to provide a wide-range of services. All advocates are required to undergo a minimum of 30 hours of training on the issues of sexual assault, sexual harassment, relationship abuse and stalking, and the systems that pertain to these issues. Advocates empower survivors by providing information, tools, resources and opportunities. They are trained to work with survivors respectfully, recognizing that systems may be confusing and overwhelming to survivors.

Academic Intervention

If you find you are having trouble keeping up with your coursework, studying for tests or completing assignments on time, come talk to a SHARPP advocate.  SHARPP may be able to provide you with an Academic Intervention, through which we will ask your professor(s) to give consideration to you in your coursework.
