What to do if you have been assaulted

If your situation is urgent:

  • Find a safe place – if you are in danger call 9-1-1
  • Go to the nearest hospital
  • Call: BC Crisis Line 1-800-784-2433

If your situation is less urgent:

  • Talk with someone you trust such as a friend, a family member, a mentor, or a counsellor.
  • Consider disclosing or reporting the incident to the university.  It is up to you whether you choose to do this.  A contact person is available to help you with either a disclosure (to receive support without initiating an investigation) or a report that will initiate an investigation.
  • With someone you trust, familiarize yourself with the options for recourse and support that are available to you, both on and off campus.  A contact person can be that person.
