Your first step is to get to a safe place.
Once you are in a safe place, talk to someone you trust about the incident—like a family member, friend, or counselor. Ideally, this will be someone who can provide you with emotional support and help you make a plan.
Next, reach out to one or more of the support resources for assistance with making a decision about whether to:
- seek medical attention,
- report to law enforcement, and/or
- file a formal complaint with the university.
