Home / Confidential Support

Sexual misconduct is a complex and painful experience which often requires a combination of legal, medical, psychological and academic information. Victims and survivors may wish to have a confidential conversation about their options and what steps they would like to take next. There are resources both on and off campus that offer confidential support. Please note, accessing confidential resources does not mean a report has been filed. You can find more information about reporting the incident in the Resources section.


On campus confidential resources



ASU Counseling Services offers confidential time-limited professional counseling and crisis services for students experiencing emotional concerns, problems in adjusting, and other factors that affect their ability to achieve their academic and personal goals. ASU Counseling can talk with you or someone you know confidentially about experiences of sexual and relationship violence and connect you with those services at ASU or in the community.




ASU Health Services is dedicated to the well-being and educational success of each individual student by providing high quality health care that is accessible, affordable, and compassionate. For victims and survivors of sexual violence, this means understanding the unique needs of each individual and talking with them about their healthcare options such as testing for pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.
