Spring 2015 Support Groups
Student Wellness & Health Promotion is offering a Sexual Assault Survivors' Support Group and a Healthy Relationships Support Group. They will not be open to the public. If interested, please call 831-3457 to schedule a 30-minute appointment. Group meetings will be 8-10 weeks, and will hopefully begin in the first week of March. Give yourself the gift of this experience!
- Victims who file a police report in Delaware (whether the case is pursued by the Attorney General's Office or not) are eligible to have medical expenses, mental health counseling costs, lost wages from missed work, damaged property, and a list of other expenses paid for by the Victim's Compensation Assistance Program. The S.O.S. Coordinator has copies of the application forms at Student Wellness & Health Promotion and can assist you with this process.Victims must have a qualified Victim Services professional sign the application form and the S.O.S. Coordinator or our DV Counselor may serve as your signer.
- If you reported your assault to University officials so that charges could be brought through the Office of Student Conduct and you eventually choose to withdraw from the University because of your assault, you may be able to receive a partial refund for what you paid for the semester. You can discuss these options with the S.O.S. Coordinator, the Dean of Students, or staff at the Office of Student Conduct.
To reach the SOS Victim Advocate on duty (24 hrs/day) call 302-831-2226. The person who answers will take a first name and phone number and the advocate will call you back within 10 minutes.

Get Up, Stand Up: Be a Courageous Bystander
Have you ever heard a sexist or homophobic joke and wished you had confronted it? Witnessed someone name-calling or hitting another person? Seen a man leading a heavily intoxicated woman into a room at a party and closing the door? Were you left with the nagging feeling that someone should have intervened...yet getting involved felt too risky? A "Courageous Bystander" is someone who takes an active role in promoting a respectful environment, or who takes action to safely and responsibly interfere with abusive attitudes, statements, or behaviors. This interactive program helps participants learn ways to be a courageous bystander and possibly save someone from victimization and trauma. Presented by UD's Sexual Offense Support (S.O.S.).
