getting help at SHARPPIf you have experienced a recent or past sexual assault, relationship abuse, sexual harassment or stalking, you may be feeling overwhelmed and confused about what to do and where to go for help.

We also provide assistance to individuals who may be assisting a friend/loved through a difficult time.

Contacting SHARPP

If you or a friend is in imminent danger of being hurt, the most important thing to do is to is call 911.

Anyone in the UNH community can get help at SHARPP by visiting us during our office: Monday – Friday,  8am – 4pm at Wolffe House (next to Health & Wellness), calling our 24/7 Helpline (603) 862-7233  or using our Ask an Advocate online service.

Many of our clients are already connected to resources on campus, such as the UNH Psychological and Counseling Services and Health & Wellness. These service providers may advise and encourage you to seek assistance at SHARPP, and may even accompany you here. In addition, when you make a police report or seek medical attention after an assault, the responders (police, ambulance, etc.) should be offering our services to you.  It is your choice whether or not to use the services SHARPP offers.

You do not need to be in crisis to call SHARPP. We can assist you if you are wondering about something in your relationship, unsure how to support a friend, or just want to talk. Never feel that an issue is too big or too small for SHARPP to handle. We are here to listen and provide you support, in whatever way we can.
