Relationship Violence Resources
Before reading further, make sure that you are in a safe place:
- If you need emergency assistance on campus, call Campus Safety at 315-859-4000
- If you need emergency assistance off campus call 911
Once in a safe place: do not change your clothes, brush your teeth, shower, bathe, drink, eat, wash your hands. This is difficult but will be pertinent if you decide to allow collection of evidence and to report the incident in the future.
It is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible after a sexual assault. Ideally within 96 hours if wanting a forensic exam, there are timeframes for interventions.
- To have a forensic medical exam and/or complete assault kit call Help Restore Hope Hotline (24 hour) for immediate supports 855-966-9723 *
- For confidential Medical Assistance Call the Hamilton Health Center 315-859-4111 or go to the closest local Hospital Emergency Room (Google search may be useful in this effort)
- For further 24 hour anonymous off campus supports you can contact
- On-Campus Counseling Center 315-859-4340
- For additional supports consider reaching out to trusted friend
- Consider reporting the assault to Title IX Coordinator (Catherine Berryman) or the NY state police.
- Seeking medical attention does not obligate you to report.
- Reporting the incident does not obligate you to undergo a forensic medical exam.
*If you are unsure if you are a candidate for a forensic medical exam, have an open discussion with the hotline worker so they can best advocate for your wishes.*
