UHS has been continually accredited by the AAAHC since 1983
Survivor Services provides confidential support to student victim/survivors of sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, and/or stalking. These services are available to UW-Madison students at no cost. You are not alone and we believe that survivors are experts on their own experiences and healing.
Survivor Services does NOT provide on-call services, operate a 24-hour crisis line, offer diagnosis or prescribe medication, provide treatment for mental health diagnoses, or provide legal advice.
Our services include:
- Information and referral
- Drop in, no-appointment needed services are available when classes are in session
- Emotionally supportive listening and non-judgmental response to your experiences
- Consultations to family, friends, and university employees about how to best support survivors
- Referrals to and information about campus and community services, including reporting options and confidential support
- Information about and assistance in changing academic, living, transportation, and working situations
- Referrals to low-cost and pro bono attorneys who are informed about criminal and campus disciplinary proceedings
- Information about criminal processes, campus policies and procedures, how to petition for a restraining order, and victim rights
- Emotionally supportive counseling and case management
- Ongoing, individualized emotional support and coordination of care for survivors as part of their healing process
- Support in working towards short- and long-term healing goals
- Bi-weekly, monthly or scheduled as needed
- UHS Survivor Services does not have a session limit or cap on services for students
- Support groups
- Weekly, confidential support groups facilitated by trained victim advocates for UW-Madison survivors. Click above for more information about our current offerings!
- Advocacy and accompaniment
- When requested by survivors, our staff are available to attend appointments (i.e., medical, legal, campus disciplinary hearings) with student survivors to provide them with support and advocate on their behalf when appropriate.
- If you have an upcoming court date, meeting with a campus official as part of an investigation, or reporting to law enforcement, you have the right to have a victim advocate with you.
Services are available in Spanish upon request.
Confidential means that—as allowable by law—the information survivors share with our victim advocates will not be shared to law enforcement, campus authorities, parents, or any other person without the explicit written permission of the student victim/survivor.
