Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Resources

A few months ago, The Carolinian had an article about domestic violence and sexual assault. As we get into a new year and head back to life on campus, I decided to share a list of every organization in South Carolina that provides help and support for those who have or are going through similar situations. Ms. Hannah Stewart, from the South Carolina Coalition Against Violence and Sexual Assault (SCCADVASA), provided a brochure with many resources.

As we all know, campus security and the university work hard to keep us in a safe environment, but we should all be mindful of our surroundings and having resources is always helpful. The university also provides us with counseling services at the second floor of the CLC. If you think you might be in danger or in an unhealthy relationship/situation, please reach out to somebody you trust or seek help from any of the recourses listed.

Helpful reminders:

You are not alone

It is not your fault

People are here to help
