Support & Counseling
Support & Counseling Services Options:
- On-campus support is available by phone 24 hours/day from trained S.O.S. Victim Advocates. To contact S.O.S., call the Health Center at 302-831-2226. The staff will take a first name and phone number and the Victim Advocate on duty will call you back within 10 minutes.
- During the initial crisis period after victimization, one-on-one appointments for support, crisis intervention, and follow-up care are provided by the S.O.S. Coordinator. Call 302-831-3457 to make an appointment.
- Sexual Assault Survivors' Support Groups are also offered by S.O.S.. To find out more or get involved with the next group, contact Student Wellness & Health Promotion at 302-831-3457. Group closes after 2 sessions, so calling earlier in the semester is recommended.
- Counseling is available at the Center for Counseling and Student Development which is located above the bookstore in the Perkins Student Center. To make an appointment with an intake counselor, call the Counseling Center at 302-831-2141.
- If you are struggling with sexual abuse that occurred during childhood, you may wish to contact SOAR, Survivors Of Abuse in Recovery, at 302-655-3953. SOAR offers both individual and group counseling and functions on a sliding-fee scale for those without insurance.
- S.O.S. or the Counseling Center can make referrals to counselors in private practice who specialize in these topics. Call Student Wellness & Health Promotion and ask to speak to Angela for a referral, 302-831-3457. Or call the Counseling Center at 302-831-2141.
