Crisis and Emotional Support

Need to talk? Support is available.

Since 2002 the SASC has been committed to the support and empowerment of people of all genders who are survivors of sexualized violence and intimate partner violence. We also offer support to survivor’s friends and family.

You can call during our business hours or schedule an appointment with us via phone (604-827-5180) and email. Due to social distancing, we also offer video calls using Doxy.me and can text with you using the Signal app. Learn more about how to receive support during COVID-19 by visiting our blog.

Limited in-person support will be available by request from May 20th onward. Click here for details.

We offer confidential, nonjudgmental support with the following:

  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual abuse in childhood
  • Intimate partner violence or relationship violence
  • Stalking
  • Harassment
  • Isolation and hazing
  • Self care and coping strategies
  • Boundaries and assertiveness
  • Safety planning

We offer referrals to other community resources and campus resources to further support you – you can find further resources here. We also offer free, survivor-led advocacy and accompaniment services to help make seeking support, gaining academic concessions, and navigating the justice system a little easier. You are not alone.
